ATLANTA - Hands-free driving could become law in Georgia sooner rather than later.
Friday morning, State Representative John Carson was joined by family members of people killed in distracted driving accidents.
They were there to discuss the hands-free driving bill Carson sponsored in the Georgia House.
If passed, the new legislation would create penalties for drivers caught using electronic devices behind the wheel.
The bill has already passed through the House and State Senate Judiciary committees.
It's also been endorsed by Governor Nathan Deal and Lieutenant Governor Casey Cagle.
