16th state bans drivers from holding cellphones
Drivers will be banned from holding their cellphones or other electronic devices, even while stopped, under a new law signed by Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal.  
News outlets report drivers will also be prohibited from watching movies or shooting video. Drivers still can talk on the phone or text if they use hands-free technology. The bill will take effect July 1.  
House Bill 673 is the most significant change in driving rules since texting while driving was banned in 2010. The Augusta Chronicle reports the signing made Georgia the 16th state in the nation to ban drivers from having a cellphone in their hand. ľAP
