Georgia Texting and Driving Law Difficult to Enforce

Two years ago, Georgia enacted laws intended to stop drivers from texting while driving in an effort to stop the practice before any additional lives were lost. The reality of the matter is that though the law was proactive and Georgia was one of the first states in the country to actually do something about stopping this dangerous practice, enforcing the law is not easy. Since the law states its illegal to “operate a motor vehicle on any public road or highway of this state while using a wireless telecommunications device to write, send, or read any text based communication, including but not limited to, a text message, instant message, email or Internet data”, basically any action with the phone other than hands free phone calling is prohibited.

But why have so few citations been issued to date?
