  • Cell phone ban passes House

    SANTA FE — Legislation that would prohibit drivers in New Mexico from using hand-held cell phones for talking or texting was narrowly approved by the House on Tuesday.

    The bill would make New Mexico the seventh state to ban the use of hand-held cell phones while driving. Some of New Mexico’s largest cities — Albuquerque, Santa Fe and Las Cruces — already have municipal ordinances that bar cell phone use for drivers.

    Under the proposed statewide ban, violators would face a misdemeanor penalty of $25.
