Florida's new law banning texting while driving is reportedly so difficult to enforce it's hardly being used. 

Officials say the state is on track to issue only 1,800 tickets in the first year of the law. 

Because lawmakers made texting while driving a secondary offense, drivers can only be stopped if they commit another violation, such as speeding or running a red light.  Officers say they often see drivers pushing buttons on their phones, but unless they are committing another offense at the same time, cops can't do anything about it.
