After a year of staying at home, it’s expected that more cars than ever will be on the road this year as the summer travel season starts up.
COVINGTON, Ga. (PRWEB) May 11, 2021
To help keep drivers safe this summer, the firm is releasing a public service announcement for visitors and residents seeking to avoid traffic citations while in Covington.
Georgia is a hands-free state. As of 2018, Georgia law makes it illegal for a driver to keep a cell phone or electronic device in their hand. Talking, texting, and other actions cannot be performed while holding a mobile device and operating a moving vehicle in the state. The punishment for a first-time conviction includes a $50 fine and one point assessed against the driver's license, with penalties increasing from there.
Super speeder violations in Covington are common on the stretch of I-20 that runs through the town. With up to 6 total lanes, multiple construction points, and speed limits that can range from 55 to 70 miles per hour, it's important that drivers pay close attention to signage and road markings while in the area. Local police have been known to patrol the I-20 area to issue traffic citations and speeding tickets. Depending on the severity of the charge, individuals may face points on their driver's license, increased insurance rates, or substantial court fines.
"We're excited to see things getting back to normal," Partner Titus M. Pemberton said, "but we ask drivers to slow down, put down their phones, and really look out for others on the road." After a year of staying at home, it’s expected that more cars than ever will be on the road this year as the summer travel season starts up. The best thing drivers can do is stay aware.
