Know the Law!
Currently, in both Georgia and Tennessee, there are traffic laws in place that prohibit a person from typing, transmitting, or reading any type of electronic-based message while operating a car or any type of motor vehicle. Something else to keep in mind is that there are “distracted driving” laws in both states. This means that the activity itself influences your ability to safely operate a car or motor vehicle, a police officer can still write you a citation for not focusing your attention on driving. Distracted driving laws can also include activities such as:
• Applying Make-Up
• Adjusting the Radio
• Looking for Personal Items in Your Car
