That’s incorrect! Epifanio Rodriguez, the public information officer of Athens Clarke County Police Department, says all drivers in Georgia under the age of 18 cannot use a phone in the car at all.

The Athens-Clarke Police Department Facebook page made an easy-to-read explanation of the law. Read it here!
