"Coloradans are not paying attention to how risky distracted driving really is".

"More than 20,000 in 2015 that's a lot of crashes that are really all preventable".

However, the world is nothing if not paradoxical, and we just may be saved from our technologically distracted driving habits by technology itself.

Police officers will be on the lookout for texting drivers as part of a national law enforcement initiative.

Of the estimated 57,298 distracted driving crashes in Colorado between 2012 and 2015, drivers 21 to 30 years old were involved in 30 percent of the crashes. Some 42 percent of respondents said they "very often" see driver's texting.

STATEWIDE-When you drive on any road or highway, there's one thing you're nearly certain to see: distracted drivers.

If you're someone who still fiddles with your phone while driving, police will be looking for you.

According to a media release, if you get caught using your cell phone while driving you will be fined $162.

"Because text messaging requires visual, manual, and cognitive attention from the driver, it is by far the most alarming distraction", according to a state Department of Law and Public Safety statement. Erie Insurance, a national provider of auto, home and life insurance, recently conducted a survey of almost 3,000 licensed us drivers, and found that about 60 percent of them believe self-driving cars will erase the problem of distracted driving. "Put your phone away, and make sure you stay focused". Beyond texting, CDOT said 64 percent had selected entertainment on a mobile device and 33 percent had talked on a phone while driving. "This effort is meant to educate our community about the dangers of cellphone use and other distractions while driving".

Accident reports in the state of MI now tracks whether drivers were distracted when they had their accidents.
