Distracted driving has become an epidemic on the roadways. While texting behind the wheel is what most think of when “distracted driving” is mentioned, there are many others that can be deadly.
Talking on the phone, setting your GPS, drinking or eating, and applying makeup are others that can waste reaction time you may need to avoid a close call or deadly crash, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
In 2019, the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security partnered with the Tennessee Department of Transportation and the Tennessee Department of Tourist Development to introduce “Hands-Free Tennessee.”
A campaign focused on educating Tennesseans about the dangers of distracted driving and about the state’s “Hands-Free Law” which took effect in July 2019.
According to Public Chapter No. 412, it is illegal for a driver to:
(a) hold a cellphone or mobile device with any part of their body,
(b) write, send, or read any text-based communication,
(c) reach for a cellphone or mobile device in a manner that requires the driver to no longer be in a seated driving position or properly restrained by a seat belt,
(d) watch a video or movie on a cellphone or mobile device, and
(e) record or broadcast video on a cellphone or mobile device.
In 2019, almost 24,000 accidents were caused by distracted driving in Tennessee. In 2020, that number was down to 9,404.
