Georgia House Bans Texting

The Georgia State House of Representatives passed a bill by a vote of 134-31 to ban all drivers from texting and driving.  The bill was initially just for drivers under 18, but was expanded to all drivers.

Ironically, this bill does not make illegal using GPS navigation devices even if they are hand held.

This is the first step in pushing an anti-texting law in place.  Now the Georgia State Senate must vote on this bill for it to become law.

The opposition to the bill claims that distracted driving is already a crime and did not see the for additional laws geared specifically to texting.

It is clear that texting and driving is a very hot topic as of late.  Insurance companies are filming commercials directed toward this conduct and there are more and more public campaigns to end this practice.

The one thing for certain is it is a dangerous practice and likely soon to be an illegal practice if you text and drive.
