Ban Texting While DrivingJune 1, 2010 at 04:29pm by Sally Flocks ·
Will Governor Sonny Perdue veto Senate Bill 360 that would ban texting while driving? We don’t know. Perdue has until June 8 to sign it but he hasn’t been clear about his intentions.
Please call Sonny Perdue (404-656-1776) and urge him to sign SB 360 to ban texting while driving in Georgia! If you prefer to write a letter, use this form.
Currently, text messaging is banned for all drivers in 27 states and the District of Columbia. See an interactive map of texting bans here. In addition, novice drivers are banned from texting in 8 states (Alabama, Delaware, Indiana, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, Texas, and West Virginia).
According to Georgia’s legislative rules, this bill will pass if Governor Perdue either signs it or does nothing. But, he could still decide to veto it. So please call Perdue today (404-656-1776) and urge him to sign the bill. This is a big deal and we need him to show his full support for a ban on texting while driving in Georgia.
