WACO— Waco Police Department is cracking down on the new cell phone ban in school zones.
The law states drivers using a cell phone in a school zone during school hours will be ticketed.
The law does include a few exceptions: a hands-free device, the car is stopped or if it is an emergency.
Officials say violators can be fined up to 200 dollars.
