Hands Free Law Goes Into Affect Next Month

We’re just a week away from Tennessee going Hands Free. The new “Hands Free Law” goes into effect Monday, July 1st. There are five main points to the law:

  • The driver can’t hold a cellphone with any part of their body.
  • The driver can’t write, send, or read any text-based communication
  • The driver can’t reach for their phone “in a manner that requires you to no longer be seated or have to remove your seat-belt”
  • The driver can’t watch a video or movie on a phone
  • The driver can’t record or broadcast video on a cellphone

The goal is to eliminate distracted driving. Officials say last year there were over 24,000 crashes involving distracted drivers. A recent study showed Tennessee has the highest rate of distracted driving deaths in the nation. They say we’re nearly five times the national average.
