ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- One northwest Albuquerque homeowner is fed up with people who are distracted by their phones while they’re behind the wheel.

Their wall makes that clear. There is a message along with some serious damage.

Drivers heading down the hill on Golf Course near La Orilla in Northwest Albuquerque will spot this message: "Stop texting and driving."

There were about half a dozen signs of impact along that stretch of Golf Course Road, including one in that sign. There was even a chunk of someone’s tail light embedded into the wall at one point.

Ericka Armendariz, who lives in the area, feels bad for her neighbor's damage.

"Our neighbors here have had several incidents, several accidents there," she said. "I don't know if it's just the placement."

It’s not clear if texting is behind all those incidents or if it’s just a case of unlucky road placement. What is clear is the message written on the wall.
