Recent reports show state troopers have only issued 59 citations.
This news of low citation numbers prompted some drivers to question if the law is doing its job.
"Apparently (law enforcement) has looked the other way because you could write that many every morning, and every afternoon," said Bobby Dean.
Law enforcement disagreed with Dean, saying the law is doing exactly what it was meant to do.
"This is not something that we actively went out looking for (targeting) this one crime," said Sgt. Rachel David, with the police department. "It's like any other traffic law. Officers are looking for anything that will cause danger to another driver."
While the number of tickets given out isn't large, state troopers and local law enforcement say they have seen the number of people texting go down.
"Driving around I've seen people not texting as much since the law came into effect," said Kevin Cook, a state trooper. "So yes, in the day to day driving I do I have seen a decrease."
"We have also had many people tell us that prior to the implementation of the law they still had a tendency to text," said David. "Now that they know it is a law and is enforced, they have stopped texting and driving."
Police point out that the high cost of the ticket might be part of the reason people are choosing to put the phone down.
It could cost a driver around $200 to text including the ticket cost plus court fees.
