Georgia's new hands-free cell phone law: More than 1,000 tickets, warnings issued

Posted July 11, 2018

Georgia's new hands-free cell phone law has resulted in more than 1,000 tickets and warnings being issued since the start of the month, according to law enforcement statistics.

Georgia's law makes it illegal for drivers to have a phone in their hand or use any part of their body to support a phone. Drivers can only use their phones to make or receive phone calls if they use speakerphone, earpiece, wireless headphones or the phone is connected to the vehicle or electronic watch. GPS navigation devices are allowed.

Violators face a $50 fine for first conviction; $100 for second; and $150 for third and subsequent convictions.

Georgia is the 16th state in the country to enact a hands-free driving law.

The law doesn't include a grace period for drivers but many departments have opted to issue verbal warnings during the first few weeks. The warnings are being issued as a courtesy, however, and that practice won't last forever, officials said.
