Georgia State Troopers and other police officials are having a tough time cracking down on people who text behind the wheel of their vehicle. The two-year old ban on the practice has thus far netted just under 1,300 convictions, which averages out to only about two citations every day. The ban is not as strict as similar ordinances in other areas, as officers must prove that the driver was texting. As such, troopers are told not to even bother unless there is no doubt in their mind that texting occurred. Otherwise, cops could find themselves pulling a person over only to find that they were checking a map or engaging in some other distracting behavior not covered by the law.
