Once again, Georgia lawmakers are trying to get a law passed to keep drivers from yakking on their cell phones while they drive.
Rep. Rahn Mayo, (D) of Decatur, who proposed law, aims to stop people from using cell phones while driving in the state, but would not limit drivers from hands-free devices, according to the Atlanta Business Chronicle.
"It's going to save lives," Mayo told the Chronicle.
Mayo has been in a two-year fight to collect enough votes in the House to move the bill over to the Senate. Mayo hopes the latest version of the bill will make it through the legislature and onto Governor Nathan Deal's desk.
The most recent Georgia driving law already restricts drivers who are 17 and younger from using cell phones completely while driving and bans adults from texting while driving.
