TEXTING DRIVERS BEWARE!!!
The Bexar County Sheriff’s Office is employing a new technology to combat texting and driving. The first of its kind in this area, the “Cell Phone Terminator” will be used to short circuit, or render completely useless, any cell phone being used by drivers on Bexar County roads.

Seized drug money will be used to purchase the technology and to train deputies.
