The Office of the Sheriff, in keeping with our partnership with Virginia DMV, reminds residents of Franklin County to put down the phone when driving.

Current Virginia law (Code of VA 46.2-1078.1) has made it illegal to manually enter multiple letters or text in the device as a means of communicating with another person, or read any email or text message transmitted to the device or stored within the device while operating a vehicle on state maintained highways.
