Texting while driving is discouraged in the state of West Virginia. Novice drivers, those with a learner's or intermediate permit, are prohibited from using their cell phones in any manner while driving. This law continues to be enforced by police officers. The primary reason that texting while driving is discouraged is that it increases the chance of causing an accident.
Texting while driving is a form of distracted driving and is especially dangerous because the driver will take his or her eyes off the road of the highest duration of time. That does not, however, mean that drivers have ceased putting others at risk by sending and reading texts while driving.
