(Don’t) Hold the Phone!

As of July 1, it’s against the law for drivers in Georgia to use cellphones unless they are hands-free devices. The law’s goal is to curb distracted driving, which has caused a 33 percent increase in traffic deaths from 2014 to 2016.

Drivers can talk on the phone and use a navigation program but their phones must be mounted to windshields or dashboards. If caught, drivers can be fined up to $50; they can avoid fines if they have proof in court that they’ve purchased a hands-free device. Texting while driving is also illegal.
