Distracted Driving Awareness Month

April is National Distracted Driving Awareness Month.  Distracted driving is actually results in far more injuries than drunk driving yet it seems to be much more socially acceptable.  The Safe Roads Alliance released this video proving this point.  It shows a cab driver drinking what appears to be alcohol while driving his passengers.  Every fare challenged him about drinking and driving…some quite angrily.  The same cab driver then is shown to be reading and responding to text messages while driving.  Not one of his fares objects.
Both DUI and texting while driving are crimes in Colorado.  Please avoid both or you will need the services of a criminal defense attorney.
