There is another attempt in the Georgia legislature during the current session to get a law passed that would ban the use of cell phones while driving.
According to Biz Journal, Rep. Rahn Mayo (D-Decatur) is the chief sponsor of the legislation, which reportedly aims to prevent drivers from using hand-held phones while driving in Georgia. It does, however, allow for the use of hands-free devices. There are already laws against texting while driving.
It is not the first time Mayo has attempted to get cell phones banned, but he has been unsuccessful in the last two years to get enough votes in the House to move the bill over to the Senate. He's hoping the third time will be a charm. Mayo reportedly said passing the bill would save lives.
Do you support such a ban and do you believe the Geogia legislature will get it passed this year?
