Colorado Bans Texting While Driving for Adults, All Cell Phone Use by Juvie Drivers
On the last day of the legislative session, the Colorado Senate passed a bill banning adults from texting while driving. The original proposal also prohibited talking on a cell phone without a head set, but that was dropped.
For drivers 18 and under, all cell phone use while driving is prohibited. The law goes into effect December 1.
I wonder how a cop is going to be able to tell if you are texting or checking your voicemail or using the internet to say, check a google map. Sounds to me like a lot of people will be stopped for investigation of texting and then show what they were doing or looking at on their phone to convince the cop they weren't texting.
This sounds like a law that will do nothing but increase traffic stops and decrease privacy rights.
