Chattanooga law firm Warren & Griffin has launched a petition that urges legislators to pass a Hands Free Tennessee bill targeting distracted driving, Fox Chattanooga reports. A similar bill was recently passed in Georgia, prohibiting drivers not only from texting while driving but also from touching or holding their phone while operating a vehicle. An estimated 3,000 deaths occur each year nationally due to distracted driving. Warren & Griffin's C. Mark Warren said his firm is starting the petition because of the influx of families coming to the firm with cases related to distracted driving.
