MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- Law officers in some eastern Alabama jurisdictions have yet to issue any citations under the state's new law banning texting and driving.

The law went into effect on Aug. 1.

The Anniston Star reports that the Anniston, Jacksonville and Oxford police departments and the Calhoun County Sheriff's Office all said they've issued no citations for the offense.

Alabama State Trooper Charles Dysart said statewide numbers for local agencies weren't available, but in the first month of the law, the Department of Public Safety issued 14 tickets on Alabama highways.
