COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - As part of a yearlong campaign to eradicate distracted driving, Colorado State Patrol is increasing enforcement of the no texting law and adding patrols to look for distracted drivers.

The Gazette of Colorado Springs reports (http://bit.ly/1GlESMv ) that minors are prohibited from using a cellphone while driving and all drivers are prohibited from texting.

The State Patrol campaign, which is funded by a Colorado Department of Transportation grant, includes message boards throughout the state warning drivers to ditch distractions.

CDOT defines distracted driving as participating in any of the following behaviors while driving: using a cellphone, eating or drinking, engaging with passengers, applying makeup, reading a map or adjusting the radio.
