After demanding the city of Richmond remain closed last week even as businesses struggle to keep their heads above water, it seems Mayor Levar Stoney's priority now is outlawing the use of cell phones while driving. 

The Richmond City Council voted unanimously to pass the ban on using hand-held devices while driving in December 2019. That law will go into effect on June 9.
