Reminder: new cell phone and text messaging laws go into effect today (July 1, 2010)

As we have previously written, new laws in Georgia prohibiting text messaging and internet use by all drivers, along with a total ban on cell phone use by those drivers under 18 years of age, went into effect today, July 1, 2010.

Violation of either law carries a penalty of $150, plus 1 point toward the driver's cumulative driving record.  Drivers receiving more than 15 points in a two-year period are subject to license suspension.
