jenrgw Are Changes Coming to the New York Distracted Driving Law?

Last Tuesday, the New York Senate overwhelmingly passed legislation that would toughen New York’s distracted driving law.  The Senate voted 57 -3 in favor of a bill that would make it a primary offense to operate a motor vehicle while texting.   Additionally, the bill would require driver’s education courses to include information about the dangers of texting and driving. 

Currently, texting and driving is a secondary offense in New York State, meaning that police do not have the authority to pull someone over for violating the law unless the driver is also committing a primary offense. 

The bill must now pass the Assembly and be signed by the Governor in order to become law.
