Law enforcement officials in Thomasville took to the streets to get drivers ready for the new Hands-Free Law.

As of last year, the Thomasville Police Department has a Thank You Detail a few times a year to show its appreciation for safe drivers.

The officers go to four-way intersections to stop safe drivers to give them a card and say "thank you."

"It gives them, it is a positive reinforcement to follow the law," said Thomasville Police Department Public Information Officer Major Wade Glover.

On Tuesday, officers used their Thank You Detail to hand out flyers to drivers about the upcoming Hands-Free Law.

"The biggest thing is try to save lives. Protect property and save lives, that's our overall objective here," said Glover.

To help further educate you on this new law, Thomasville police will periodically be handing out flyers until July 1.

And officers urge you to tell your friends because there is no grace period.
