I'm concerned that people will be even less safe as a large subset of drivers will continue to use their phones. They'll just be trying to hide the fact that they're doing it which means they'll be texting in a manner that is less convenient and ultimately makes them a less safe driver. Has this possibility been considered? Have other states with similar laws seen text-related accidents reduced?

Had my home in Georgia sprayed. The next day there was a ring of dead black widow spiders around my house. The experience basically ruined my yard for me.

There were large piles of wood not far from the house which made it a good breeding ground for these things. It was still a shock seeing how many had taken up residence around the house.

Later that year while my then-wife was at work, I stepped out of the shower and saw a scorpion on the floor. I'm originally from south Georgia, but was living at north Georgia at the time and had NO idea that scorpions were a thing in Georgia. Not having on shoes, I told the scorpion to wait and let me go fetch a shoe to smash him to oblivion. By the time I came back, he was gone. Only 15 years later did I tell my ex-wife about that. Had I told her then she'd have made me burn the house down.

Another concern I have is that people will use hands free texting (i.e. speech to text) and communicate in that matter. I assume that's legal, but will my phone be able to communicate that to an officer when I've been pulled over? In other words, will a text that is sent hands free look the same on my phone (in the eyes of the cop) as a text that was sent while holding the phone?
