Texting while driving in Colorado is often treated as a teenage problem, but the truth is that adults are just as guilty. In fact, according to CNN, adults are more likely to be texting while driving than teens. Even so, distracted driving is far more dangerous when there is a teenager at the wheel. From snapping selfies of themselves driving to responding to text messages, teenagers often put themselves and other drivers at risk.
Many Colorado residents know that car accidents often happen when people try to multitask behind the wheel. Texting, eating and manually using a phone are all common causes of accidents. Reducing the number of distracted drivers on Colorado roads may significantly improve the safety of drivers, passengers, pedestrians and bicyclists throughout the state.
