Georgia’s Texting Laws
Georgia has some of the strictest cell phone driving laws in the nation.
It is illegal to send text messages, write emails, browse the internet,
read texts, or any other similar activity while operating a motor vehicle.
Bus drivers and
drivers younger than 18 years old are prohibited from all cell phone use – including handheld
and hands-free use while driving. The law provides an exception for drivers
in emergency situations, parked drivers, and for emergency personnel.
