Gwinnett Officer Gives Nearly 800 Tickets for Texting

 

GWINNETT - If you text and drive in Gwinnett County, a police officer is looking to ticket you.
 
Police Officer Jessie Myers told WSB-TV that he has issued nearly 800 tickets to motorists for driving while typing on cell phones. He expects to reach 1,000 tickets by the end of the year.
 
Myers said it's easiest to catch people in the act at traffic lights. Typing at a red light is illegal if the car is on a roadway.
 
He also said that Georgia law forbids drivers from using Web-based mapping applications on their phones, too.
