New texting ban in effect Tuesday

The texting ban will only apply to bus and commercial truck drivers

A new law out Tuesday is banning a select few drivers from texting while driving.

The ban applies to bus drivers and commercial truck drivers. If caught, they could face a fine of $2,750. Mayor Willie Adams says he believes all drivers should be included in the ban, especially teenagers. Mayor Adams knew two people killed in car accidents, both caused by texting.

There is legislation in the Georgia House waiting to be passed that would ban texting while driving for all drivers.
