Texas police station tweets wise advice on texting and driving

LONGVIEW - The Longview Police Department tweeted a photo to demonstrate the dangers of texting and driving.

Thankfully, no one was injured in this one-vehicle wreck.

Gov. Gregg Abbott recently signed a House Bill 62 into law making texting and driving illegal in Texas. Under this law, which becomes effective Sept. 1, first-time offenders will be fined  up to $99, and repeat offenders could face up to a $200 fine.
