LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD)- New state law will affect school zones. Starting September 1st it will be illegal to use a cell phone in a school zone, unless the vehicle is stopped or a hands free- free device is used.
The new law goes into effect in about a week, but won't be enforced here in Lubbock.
Officers cannot enforce the ban unless specific signs are posted, and LISD police say there is no immediate plan to post those signs.
