This law should be followed by law enforcement officers as well. I think they are the worst ones when it comes to talking on the cell phone. They get all pissed off when they pass by you, and yell out their windows for you to put your cell phones down, but yet they are just as guilty. They don't pay attention to what they are doing, while hauling butt, cutting off traffic, with no lights just to get to Wal-Mart. Are they going to fine eachother for being on their cell phones? I don't think so. What is good for the goose is good for the gander.

Good to know texting while driving is now illegal. If only driving-while-high-on-heroin were less prevalent in Espanola.

how can espanola be worse than a lot of other places? albuquerque is THE worst place in the state. everyone in alb can be traced back to alcohol and/or drugs. every house and apartment is basically a crack house. the first black president just got elected, but racism is alive and well here in alb. people and cops are all prejudice. i've been discriminated against just because i'm native american. so PLEASE do not say that espanola is worst than alb.

Don't worry Espanola residents... the police won't enforce the law there, just as they don't in Albuquerque. Give it a few months. There are more people now talking on cell phones while they drive in Albuquerque than before the ban. It is just another un-enforceable law created by lawmakers who reason for living is to create laws with their names attached to them for ego gratification...

people talking on their phones while driving is not going to get the cops excited enough to stop someone to give them a ticket
