Texting while driving now legal in Colorado — sometimes

(KDVR) 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.”

For those who are driving and texting in any other manner, shooting off a text while behind the wheel is well within the law.
