Hot Off the Presses
NY Law Makers Vote to Suspend Licenses for Texting While Driving

In Response to Numerous Accidents, NYS is Cracking Down
New York State is cracking down on young drivers who text while driving with the imminent passage of a bill that will put stiffer penalties on inexperienced drivers who text. The bill includes greater penalties for drivers who only hold junior or probationary licenses.  When the law goes into effect, texters will get more than the current fine.  On the first offense, drivers with either of these licenses will have their licenses suspended for 60 days.  If a second offense is committed within the next six months, a driver with a probationary license would have it revoked for six months, and a driver with a junior license would have it revoked for 60 days.
