Hands Free For Auto Accident Prevention

How have you been doing with Georgia’s new Hands Free Georgia Law (HB673) that went into effect July 1, 2018? It’s been over 2 months, have you been able to break your bad habits of holding or supporting your cell phone while driving? It’s a tough habit to break. If you somehow missed it, the new law states that holding or supporting, with any part of the body, a wireless telecommunication device or stand-alone electronic device. You can read more about what the new law bans and allows in this article in the AJC.

According to an article in the Augusta Chronicle “The law’s intent is to save lives, said Katie Fallon, public information officer for the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety. She said a total of 89 drivers were killed in Georgia due to distracted driving in 2016 and last year.” Those numbers only apply to the distracted drivers that were killed. It does not include other motorists, passengers or pedestrians who may have died because of a distracted driver.

Thomas Rowsey, Attorneys at Law would like to offer you some tips on how to break your cellphone use while driving.

  • Develop a plan every time before you get behind the wheel. Make sure you have your GPS programmed and any calls or texts taken care of before you get on the road.
  • Eliminate any temptation to use your phone by not making it available to you while driving.
  • Silence notifications that can tempt you to want to look at your phone.
  • Have a ‘designated texter’ take care of your communication if you’re driving.
  • Consider the damage that can be done if you choose to break the law, and let the weight of that inspire you to be hands free.

Chris Smith

Tom did an excellent job setting up my LLC for my new business recently. I was in a situation where I needed the LLC formed quickly and Tom and his team were able to work on a very short deadline. Highly recommended!

Corey Rennolds

At all times for the duration of my case, Tom demonstrated professionalism, confidence, and honesty. At no point was I pressured to make any one decision over another, but Tom did his best to inform me about the consequences and benefits of all of my options. If he did not know some specific detail regarding my case, he made the effort to find out. Tom instantly exudes trustworthiness and was always in steady contact. I would recommend his services to anyone.

Justina Allen

I met Tom over 10 years ago after settling in Roswell with my family. I have learned over the years that Tom is a man of high integrity, genuine and extremely knowledgeable in his field. Along with being honest, he is a straight shooter and will let you know where you stand. He will provide you with personal attention you don’t get at bigger firms and will go the extra mile. As legal matters can be frightening to deal with, Tom will guide you through the process and get you the results you need.
