There's a new law in Georgia that gives law enforcement a new reason to stop drivers. An anti-texting law took effect in July 2010 and is now considered to be a primary traffic offense. This gives officers reason to stop vehicles to investigate a possible texting offense. This is just another reason for law enforcement to look for additional offenses or to check to see if the driver has any warrants. The smell of alcohol or any other suspicious odor could indicate an impaired driver.
Texting while driving is both dangerous and illegal. If you have been arrested for DUI in Cherokee County, contact the Law Offices of Richard S. Lawson.
