Local law officials now have one more reason to write tickets.
Governor Bill Ritter signed into law on Monday a ban on texting while driving for all ages, and a ban on talking on a cell phone while driving for anyone under the age of 18.
Teens we spoke with say it's a hard pill to swallow, but admitted it's probably for the best.
You can expect to pay out $50 for the ticket.
Officials say the law will not start being enforced until December, but that you can always get a ticket for reckless driving.
Teens will be allowed to talk on cell phones while driving if they use a hands-free device.
