For those who follow Georgia politics, an important piece of legislation designed to reduce car accidents, save lives, and make our roads safer, is HB 673. This bill is intended to make an enforceable law which cuts down distracted driving by making non hands free cell phone use illegal. Unfortunately, as reported by the AJC (on the myAJC subscription site with limited free monthly access), the bill may have hit a snag in the Senate Judiciary Committee. Governor Nathan Deal did, however, endorse the bill in an interview on Georgia Public Broadcasting, noting the virtual impossibility of enforcing current distracted driving laws and safety. 

This piece of legislation will hopefully pass by next Thursday's deadline. I have written before on the dangers of distracted driving with the CDC statistics regarding traffic accidents and fatalities caused by distracted drivers. Please do not use cell phones while driving and keep our roads safe for everyone.
