People across Colorado are both eco-conscious and want increased fuel economy in their vehicles. Many people have demanding increased fuel economy and more options in their vehicles over the past decade, and car manufacturers have taken note. In an effort to bring the fuel standards that both the Environmental Protection Agency and consumers are demanding, manufacturers have developed smaller, subcompact cars, with excellent fuel economy.
The fact that more car accidents could occur in Colorado due to distracted drivers has been confirmed in a recent real-world study. This is especially true for younger drivers who often talk or text on a cellphone while driving. For other drivers, the study did not confirm a correlation between talking on a phone and driving, although the study made no distinction between hand-held and hands-free devices.
