Tenn. Code Ann. § 55-8-207 (Cell Phone in School Zone Law)
The Sevier County School System would like to remind drivers about a new law that will impact them when driving in an active school zone in Tennessee starting In January of 2018.
- The new law states that it is a Class C misdemeanor, punishable by a fine of up to $50, for a person to knowingly operate a motor vehicle and talk on a hand-held mobile telephone while the vehicle is in motion in any marked school zone in the State of Tennessee when a warning flasher or flashers are in operation.
- If the driver is age 18 or older, and the telephone is equipped with a hand-free device, it will not be considered an offense.
- Drivers under the age of 18, or who possess a permit or intermediate license, will be considered breaking the law if they are talking (either using a hands-free or handheld device) while driving.
Remember that texting while operating a motor vehicle is illegal in Tennessee.
