BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -  The new state law banning drivers from using cell phones while going through a school zone was supposed to take effect by now, but there is a slight hiccup.

The law can only be enforced if there is a sign posted warning people of the ban. So far state and various cities and parishes are working to get those signs out.  In East Baton Rouge Parish, officials are looking to make around 400 hundred signs. 

Once the signs are in place, it will be illegal to be on your cell phone while driving through a posted school zone.
