You may have noticed how sassy those electronic highways signs are getting in Colorado. Messages like "get your head out of your apps" and "drop the phone to make it home."

The state's transportation department wants people to put an end to distracted driving. Officials estimate drivers whose attention was diverted were behind more than 15,000 crashes in Colorado last year. And they want your help in this campaign.

Sam Cole is a spokesman for CDOT. He spoke with Colorado Matters host Ryan Warner.
