In the State of Tennessee, you are no longer allowed to use handheld cell phones while driving. What this means is that you can't even hold a cell phone while driving if you are not making or receiving a call.
According to the Hands Free Tennessee website, there were over 24,000 crashes in 2018 involving distracted drivers.
Despite what you think, it is fairly easy for law enforcement to see if you are using a cell phone while driving.
If you want to talk while driving, use your car's bluetooth. Use headphones and ear pieces to play your phone through the radio. You can buy solid mounts for cell phones for under $50 on Amazon.
