There's a lot of confusion regarding the law that will take effect 01 July 2018.
This is the long version https://www.gahighwaysafety.org/high...ands-free-law/
and the short version Pandora, Spotify, internet radio legal in Georgia July 1 | The Telegraph
Out of state drivers (mainly Fla) should pay particular attention as they make up about 50% of interstate traffic there.

Try this link for the Pandora Spotify et-al link
Shorter read

Longer article

Basically it says you may not touch your phone while driving but if you set up a music stream before you start. that is OK, and if you can VOICE command it that too is ok... I basically could not use my cell phone while driving in GA.. As most of the places I drove NO SIGNAL, (Well I could use it as an MP3 player).


Home is where I park it.

...but you can still use your RADIO all you want? Or smoke cigarettes?

Using buzz word legislation to sensationalize a minor issue.

Meanwhile...how much does the average household pay for fuel in a year? Taxes? Electricity? Education?

Priorities.

Here in B.C. the penalties are far more severe, rightfully so. In my home province 78 people did not make it home to their families which is more then people who passed away from accidents involving impaired driving. Put the **** electronics away, it might happen to you or your family!

Look up the stats on how many deaths are being caused by distracted drivers. Messing with their phone when they should be driving.

Distracted driving kills a lot more kids than ANY firearm will.
