SMYRNA, GA (CBS46) -

The city of Smyrna is about to become the first city in the state to ban handheld devices for drivers.

The city council was split on the ordinance during a meeting Tuesday night but Mayor Max Bacon cast the deciding vote.

You will be able to touch your phone to answer a call but anything beyond that will be against the law. 

The ordinance goes into effect on April 2.
