Officer Zack Upton from our San Angelo Police Department dropped by for a visit this morning on the 'Kickin Wake-Up Call' to talk about the new texting while driving laws in San Angelo.

He gave us some stats as to how many accidents are on record that were caused by texting while driving and also said the figures were based on individuals who admitted to it and said that in reality the figures are probably considerably higher.

We talked about the hefty fines you could end up paying for the offense as well.

Zack also reminded everyone that Rodeo is just around the corner and talked about safety with the additional traffic during that time as well.

For the complete story, check out the above interview from this morning on Kickin' Country 103.1.
