Statewide Iowa — More than one-thousand motorists got citations from the Iowa State Patrol for texting while driving last year and the numbers are still climbing.

Patrol Sergeant Nathan Ludwig says it’s now a primary offense, meaning, you can be pulled over just for texting.

April is National Texting and Driving Awareness Month and Ludwig has some advice to motorists when it comes to their phones.

Ludwig says the patrol is educating Iowans about the continuing problem.
