Marietta Enforcing Hands-Free Law [07-22-14]

Filed under: Around Marden — Editor @ 9:26 am

PhoneThe Marietta Police Department is beginning to aggressively enforce the no-texting while driving ban. The law prohibits not only texting but any use of handheld wireless devices that you manipulate with your hands (keying in a phone number, etc.). Second, it makes wireless device use by a driver a primary offense, which means if they see you manipulating or holding your phone, you will get a ticket.

The law also encompasses other devices like tablets, laptops and even GPS units.   According to the new law, a person may use a device as long as it does not require “manually entering letters, numbers, or symbols or reading text messages.”  “A person using a handheld device in conjunction with a voice-operated or hands free device feature is permitted.”   For those of you traveling to or working from the Home Office, please conduct yourselves in accordance with the law.  Multiple offenses may result in the suspension of your driver’s license.
