We've probably all talked on the phone or eaten food while driving, but one lawmaker wants drivers to pay. if they get caught.
Louisville, Colorado lawmaker Paul Weismann plans to introduce a bill in the state house next month that would double fines if a driver is using a cell phone or eating and is stopped for a traffic offense.
There have been several attempts by the legislature in the past to limit cell phone use, but all have failed. Weismann says his law has a better chance of passing because it only increases fines instead of creating new law.
Lawmakers return to work on Wednesday, January 10.
