NORWALK - Gov. Jodi Rell announced plans this weekend to toughen laws against hand-held cell phones while driving.

In a statement Saturday, Rell said she will present legislation for stricter enforcement of Connecticut's 2005 law barring hand-held cell phones while driving. Rell's new plan would also fine drivers for first-time offenses and target drivers who are texting or e-mailing from their phones, in addition to talking.

Some residents say they think stricter enforcement is a good idea, but difficult to implement.
