Georgia considering ban on handheld devices for drivers over 18

The Georgia House of Representatives is currently considering passing a bill that would ban drivers over the age of 18 from using handheld devices while driving.

Presently, all drivers in the state of Georgia are prohibited from writing, sending and reading text messages while driving, but drivers over the age of 18 (aside from bus drivers) are not forbidden from using handheld devices to make a voice call while driving.

House Bill 163 would change this.
