Texting while driving on Georgia roads will now come at price.

Starting yesterday police began ticketing drivers who are caught texting behind the wheel and that includes those stopped at traffic lights.

Don Crozier of the Georgia State Patrol explains the only legal way for drivers to receive texts.

The law applies to all drivers and an officer can make a stop for texting and driving even if no other offense is committed.

The initial fine will cost you $150.
