Distracted Driving Bill Passes!

Distracted driving is one of the main risks to cyclists and other vulnerable road users. Bike Jeffco and Bicycle Colorado have worked since 2018 to support the distracted driving bill. On May 13, 2024, Colorado Legislature passed SB24-065 which will make holding a phone and driving in Colorado illegal.  It will be signed into law January 1st, 2025.

We also saw success with the passing of SB24-195 to generate funds for bike and pedestrian infrastructure and HB24-1021 to increase driver education standards for minors. More information from Bicycle Colorado about the can be found at:
