It may not be long before it's illegal to drive and talk on your cell phone in Mesilla, New Mexico. We caught some drivers on Avenida de Mesilla on their cell phones.
The mayor introduced the item on the agenda at a meeting Monday tonight. The council had mixed feelings about the issue. Some say the town is too small to even bring it up. Others say safety is the number one priority in their town, especially with the number of visitors who come to the plaza.
The council will move forward with another discussion on this issue. They are hoping to get more public input.
