Each State Has Its Own Unique Hands-Free Laws

Although the state of Georgia’s distracted driving law (effective July 1)exempts commercial two-way radio usage, it nevertheless prohibits school bus drivers from using either a wireless telecommunications device or two-way radio while loading or unloading passengers. The new law further prohibits school bus drivers from using a wireless telecommunications device when the bus is in motion, unless the device is used in a manner similar to a two-way radio to allow communication with school or public safety officials.
