Colorado lawmakers will consider a bill this week that would require drivers to use headsets if they make cellphone calls.
Drivers could be cited under the measure only if they are pulled over for another offense such as speeding or running a stop sign.
Violators wouldn't be assessed points unless they were involved in an accident. Fines would increase for those who do have accidents.
A similar bill was killed last year for being too strict. A second bill in the works would ban those with learner's permits from talking on a cellphone while driving.
