What's the one location where BCSO enforce the hands-free ordinance?
Bexar County deputies patrol streets in San Antonio, but it doesn't mean they're enforcing the city's hands-free ordinance. There is just one place where they will ticket drivers for not using a hands-free device.
Sergeant Frank Bellino with the Bexar County Sheriff's Office explains:
"Being that we're county deputies and that is a city ordinance, it's not written where county law enforcement can enforce that law – unless it's in a school zone, because that is written by the state legislature in Austin. When it's written in Austin, that pertains to us – unless it's a county ordinance, but the county has not addressed that yet."
