Car Accidents and Cell Phone Use a Real Problem In Georgia
Distracted driving is when the person operating a motor vehicle diverts their attention from the act of driving to something or someone else. Approximately 56% of all motor vehicle crashes in Georgia in 2019 had a confirmed or suspected distracted driver, and cell phone usage is one common form of distracted driving.
Talking on the phone is not the only way cell phone usage contributes to distracted driving. Using a cell phone to initiate or respond to texts also diverts the driver’s attention from the operation of the motor vehicle. Also, although it is extremely dangerous, some people even use their cell phones to watch videos, record videos, or scroll through their social media accounts. All of these actions constitute distracted driving and lead to accidents on Georgia roadways, but our College Park injury and car accident attorneys can help.
Georgia has enacted House Bill 673, known as Georgia’s Hands-Free Law, on July 1, 2018, as a way to combat driving while engaging in the use of a cell phone. This bill regulates what drivers are and are not allowed to do with the cell phone while driving. For example, a driver cannot have a cell phone in their hands while driving.
