Distracted driving enforcement begins Friday

Colorado drivers can expect to see more troopers on the roadways this weekend looking for distracted drivers.

“Law enforcement officers would much rather issue citations for those driving distracted now, than arrive at the scene of a crash caused by distracted driving later,” said Scott Hernandez, Chief of the Colorado State Patrol. “We cite drivers for reckless and distracted driving year-round, not only during our enforcement periods, and we hope this weekend reminds Coloradans of that fact.”

This summer, CDOT will launch a statewide, high-visibility awareness campaign to decrease distracted driving.
