Cell phones seem to be just about everywhere these days. Now, they'll start appearing on some accident investigation forms.
Colorado state troopers are beginning to ask motorists involved in crashes whether they were using cell phones. A "yes" answer won't mean more trouble for the driver, but could help authorities determine if the phones are a threat to public safety.
Trooper Gil Mares says there's been an increase in cell phone usage in accidents over the years, but there's never been a way to track just how much of a factor the phone was.
The Colorado Legislature has considered proposals outlawing cell phone use while driving, and passed a law last year that limits cell phone use by new drivers.
Results of the study are expected next year.
