...Officer Wright turned his lights on and signaled me to pull over, which I did.
"License and registration."
Mindful that I had two officers tailing me, I couldn't think of any traffic laws that I had violated: "Officer, why did you pull me over?"
"Under Virginia State Law it is illegal to wear headphones," he replied.
"I'm wearing the hands-free device that came with my iPhone," I said, and I showed him my iPhone.... ...Now considering that in jurisdictions like Washington, D.C., and New York, it is mandatory that one use a hands-free device with a cell phone, it struck me as very odd that here I am in Virginia being pulled over for using one.
Yet...using a hands-free device in the State of Virginia can be legally problematic."
