Georgia’s new cellphone law will affect July 4 holiday travelers who normally drive through Atlanta on their way to Florida, the Great Smoky Mountains or other Southern destinations.
What does the law mean to you? If you are driving through Atlanta, put down your phone. For that matter, if you are driving through Georgia, put down your phone, use a hands-free device and limit the things that you do with a cellphone while the car is in operation.
The new law takes effect Sunday.
