Colorado State Patrol Distracted Driving Enforcement

The Colorado State Patrol is pleased to announce the start of our Distracted Driving campaign. At the beginning of 2015, the CSP made the internal announcement that Distracted Driving will be the focus of our efforts throughout the year. Through a grant from the Colorado Department of Transportation, the CSP will strictly enforce the no texting law as well as focus on other distracted driving behaviors. Beginning today and continuing through Sunday night, motorists will see an increase in CSP patrols looking for distracted driving behaviors. In Colorado, any driver under the age of 18 is prohibited from using a telephone while operating a motor vehicle. Any driver is prohibited from texting while operating a motor vehicle.

Colorado State Patrol Chief, Scott Hernandez, reminds drivers that, “Distracted driving is a growing issue as technology continues to be part of our lives. The Colorado State Patrol is committed to ensuring safety along our roads and it will take the efforts of law enforcement and the community to put an end to distracted driving.”

The CSP is proud of the partnership with CDOT and their continued commitment to the reduction of fatal and serious injury crashes along Colorado roads. Beginning today motorists will see the Variable Message Boards across the state telling motorist to “GET YOUR HEADS OUT OF YOUR APPS.” This reminder is just part of the education and enforcement you will see throughout the year.

Chief Hernandez sums up that, “The Colorado no texting law specifically speaks to texting and similar forms of data entry but reminds drivers that any behavior that takes your focus away from your driving is a distraction and dangerous for you and those driving around you.”
