Cell phone Accidents

In Colorado, 25% of car accidents are caused because a driver is distracted by his or her cellphone. Using a cellphone while driving is a dangerous activity. On the roads, there are nearly 50% of young drivers texting while driving. In a society surrounding technology usage, it has become rare to see people without their smart phones glued to them. It is undeniable that we live in a time of connection and communication. As a society, we all depend on our email, cellphones, and other latest gadgets. Sadly, when people use these devices while driving, they are taking their hands off the wheel. Their eyes are focused on the device and their attention is off the roads.  Like any other distraction, if you are using your phone while driving you decrease your reaction time dramatically. Cell phone related accidents have been caused from:

  • Sending text messages
  • Viewing text messages
  • Running lights or stop signs
  • Sending emails
  • Delayed reaction time
  • Driving into the wrong lanes
  • Drivers who are focused on their phones for a variety of reasons

Colorado Cell Phone Law

  • Text messaging prohibited for all drivers in Colorado
  • Drivers under 18 are prohibited from cell phone use as well as text messaging
  • Colorado law prohibits the use of a cell phone by drivers under 18 unless used with hands free devices
