As of Sunday, it is now illegal for
anyone under 18 to drive while talking
or texting on their cell phone, unless
it's an emergency.

If you're caught breaking that law
you'll face a fine for the first
offense. If caught a second time, you
could lose your license for up to six
months.

Virginia has also taken steps to
protect the public...by adopting Safe
and Sane fireworks laws.

Fire crews showed us a few of the
fireworks that are illegal in the
state..this includes anything that
flies, travels along the ground or
explodes.

The Safe Kids Coalition suggests
leaving fireworks up to the
professionals.

Last year, the Regional Center

The loud noises from fireworks
scare dogs just like thunder.

The Center says the best thing
pet owners can do is to leave their
dogs at home for the fireworks show,

The Denver Nuggets have invited

Collins to be a part of their summer

in last week's N-B-A draft, despite
turning heads at the pre-draft camps.

Collins was erratic his senior
season averaging just 8 points and 5
rebounds a game.

His teammate Jamon Gordon also
went undrafted, but he too will get a
shot at playing in the league.

The former Tech guard has been
added to the Dallas Mavericks summer
league roster.

And his backcourt mate - Zabian
Dowdell is now with the Seattle

alongside Kevin Durant.
