Combining alcohol AND distracted driving

Multiple studies have suggested that distracted driving (texting or talking on a cell phone) are at least as bad as driving under the influence.  Combining the two activities led to the death of an 80 year-ild cyclist and the arrest of this gentleman.  It is unknown what defenses his lawyer might raise.

In Colorado, it is against the law to text while driving and it is against the law for drivers under the age of 18 to drive while talking on a cell phone regardless of any hands free options.
