Starting Tuesday, it will be illegal to text and drive - The Denver Post

Starting Tuesday, it will be illegal to text and drive - The Denver Post

Don't post to Twitter while merging onto Interstate 25.

Don't steer with your knees while Googling for directions. Don't sneak in a behind-the-wheel response to an e-mail, not even at a stoplight.

The tweet is gone. If you text and drive, cops in Colorado starting Tuesday are going to bust you.

"It's extremely dangerous," Colorado State Patrol spokesman Ryan Sullivan said. "Hopefully . . . by people knowing it's against the law, it will keep people from doing it."

A new law taking effect Tuesday bans texting while driving for all drivers. The law also bans all cellphone use — texting and talking — for drivers younger than 18. The legislature passed the laws during its session this year in the hopes of cutting down on accidents caused by cellphone-distracted drivers.

Good idea, but is it enforcable? Won't it be pretty difficult to spot and even moreso to prove?
