AAA and the Iowa State Patrol partner to end distracted driving

Posted: Updated:

The Iowa State Patrol launched a new program to help stop people from texting and driving.

Troopers, along with Triple A, are giving out these phone slips.

If you slip your phone into it while driving, it blocks the signal, so you wouldn't get texts or calls. 

They say it will hopefully cut down on the urge to check your phone behind the wheel.

They're doing all this just days before the state's new texting and driving laws go into effect.
