Georgia Drivers Might Get Small Grace Period With New Hands-Free Law

By Sam Whitehead | WABE | June 19, 2018

Georgia’s new “hands-free” driving law goes into effect July 1. But drivers who get pulled over for holding an electronic device might not get a ticket immediately. The Governor’s Office of Highway Safety says there will be no 90-day grace period for enforcing the law. However, some law enforcement agencies say they will observe a short period where they’ll focus on educating drivers about the new rules.
