A group of students at a Houston school are take the law into their own hands and protesting the use of cell phones and speeding at their school.Though cell phone use has been banned in school zones, police officers said find it difficult to enforce the new law because signs have not been posted, making the new law visible to drivers.

The students at the Emery School made their own signs to protest those drivers breaking the no cell phone law. Organizers got a few students and parents with signs, protesting the speeding and use of cell phones.

"We want to keep all the students on campus safe, and we want to keep the teachers safe," said Jacob Guidry, a teacher at the school. "We just thought it would be wise to start here in the community and alert everyone here that people are driving really unsafely."

According to the new state law, drivers are not allowed to be on cell phones during active school hours.
