A county in Iowa is hoping a simple reminder will be enough to keep people cited for texting while driving from doing it again.
Drivers caught texting behind the wheel in Cerro Gordo County now have a reminder that it's against the law
The Globe Gazette in Mason City says deputies are giving those
drivers pink thumb bands with "Txtng kills" imprinted on them.
The bracelets were provided through the Iowa Governor's Traffic
Sheriff Kevin Pals says deputies been handing out the bands with
a warning. He says it's a great awareness tool since most people
text with their thumbs.
No tickets are being written for violating the texting law in
its first year.
