  Sheriff Brown photoSomething to Talk About:

Each year, the Georgia General Assembly creates and updates laws.  In particular, the Newton County Sheriff’s Office has been proactive in preparing our citizens for the new Hands-Free Law that took effect on July 1, 2018.  We have created a distracted driving campaign to include: a distracted driving PSA video that is posted on our website, Facebook page and YouTube channel, created brochures for citizens and posted relevant information relating to the new law on NCSO’s Facebook page.

Listed below you will find highlights of the Hands-Free Law found on the Georgia.gov website:

As of July 1, it will be illegal to hold a phone while driving.
For purposes of the law, driving is defined as any time the vehicle is not lawfully parked.  So, no checking Facebook while stopped at a red light or watching cat videos while stuck in traffic.
More specifically, if you are using the phone:

  • As a phone: use voice commands to initiate and end calls.  The law allows you to interact with your phone using speakerphone, earpiece, wireless headphones, or an electronic watch.
  • As a navigational device: attach with a mount.
  • For texting: use voice-to-text and text-to-voice features to compose and listen to text messages.
  • To listen to music: set the music (or music service) to run before starting your vehicle, then leave it in a mount, console, or other storage area while running.

Ultimately, the aim of the Hands-Free Law is right there in the name: Your phone should not be in your hands while you’re driving.

I would like to encourage everyone to take the necessary steps to familiarize themselves with the new Hands-Free Law, so…PAY ATTENTION OR PAY THE CONSEQUENCES.
