Georgia General Assembly Committee Studying Distracted Driving — The Armond Firm, LLC

Posted by Richard Armond | Oct 31, 2017 | 0 Comments

The Georgia General Assembly (legislature) currently has a committee studying distracted driving and potential changes in the law aimed at making the roadways safer. The AJC reports that a law requiring drivers to use hands-free phone technology is one possibility. Earlier in the year the AJC reported that deaths on the roadways of Georgia rose by one-third between 2014 and 2016. One issue with current laws is the difficulty in enforcement. It can be difficult for police officers to know if a person is lawfully using a phone to dial someone or unlawfully using it to read or send prohibited text-based communication. 

Distracted driving is one of the biggest dangers affecting people on the roadways of Georgia. Thirty years ago it was nearly unthinkable that people would regularly be driving down the roads looking at phones instead of the road. Please speak to your local state representative to let him or her know that the people of this state want action to protect the innocent victims of distracted driving.
