OK, here’s a mind game. Pretend you’re a teenager and you just heard about this new law:
Beginning Monday, Colorado is banning young drivers from talking on cellular phones while they’re behind the wheel â€” a small step more states are taking in hopes of promoting safety without upsetting voters who can’t live without the convenience.
The Colorado law affects teens with restricted licenses â€” brand-new drivers who must have an adult drive with them for a year. Police can issue a citation only if the driver is stopped for another violation.
Think there’s any chance you’d decide not to take a call next time you’re driving and cell phone makes whatever unusual sound it makes when one of your friends calls?
