Police in Iowa are handing out colorful thumb bands, 30,000 so far, to people they pull over as a reminder of how dangerous texting is

The bands come in blue and bright pink and they read "txting kills."

Iowa's new texting law only allows warnings the first year. Fines will be handed out starting next year.
