Officials remind drivers that new hands-free law takes effect on July 1
According to a news release from the Governor's Office of Highway Safety, on July 1, 2018 the new Hands-Free Georgia Act that “prohibits drivers from having a phone or stand-alone electronic device in their hand or touching any part of their body” will officially take effect with no grace period for enforcement.

Starting this July, Georgia drivers will have one less distraction when cruising down the road and it isn’t a chatty backseat driver or someone’s poor taste in music.
