Texting while driving now legal in Colorado — in some cases
DENVER -- Fines for texting and driving in Colorado have jumped to $300 and drivers probably have seen the electronic highway signs issuing the warning. Turns out, there's some fine print that loosens the law on people with a foot on the pedal and a phone in hand. The increased fine and a jump to four points instead of one on a driver's license only applies to drivers who are texting in "a careless or imprudent manner."
