New Mexico texting bill

Posted: Updated:

New Mexico - Another attempt is being made at the New Mexico legislature to prohibit texting while driving.

Democratic Senator, Peter Wirth of Santa Fe has pre-filed a bill, marking the fifth time a version of a texting-while-driving ban has been introduced at the legislature.
   
The bill would impose a $25 fine for a first violation, and double the fine for a second violation.
 
Governor Susana Martinez's office says the lack of a texting-while-driving ban makes New Mexico ineligible for millions of dollars of federal funding.
