SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez has announced the state will run a new anti-texting while driving ad in July.
The Department of Transportation released Friday the ad features a woman who answers a text message while behind the wheel and kills a child crossing the street.
The new ad comes amid an advertising blitz aimed at combatting drunken driving in the state.
Martinez signed a measure in 2014 that prohibits texting while driving in New Mexico, except when seeking medical or other emergency help.
