Cuomo Says Texting While Driving Arrests Are Up

Jeff Monaski, WIBX

Albany, NY (WIBX) – The state’s strict law on texting while driving seems to be working. 

Governor Andrew Cuomo says since the law took effect on July 12th of last year there have been four times as many tickets issued for texting while driving violations.

The violation became a primary traffic offense allowing cops to stop motorists purely for engaging in the activity.

Police have issued more than 20,000 tickets for texting while driving violations since the law took effect.

Cuomo says, “Using a hand-held device while driving puts other motorists in danger and can lead to tragic consequences.”
