Hoping to Reduce Auto Accidents, New York Follows Lead of Connecticut With Tougher New Law Banning Texting While Driving

Posted by Connecticut Accident News | Jul 18, 2011 | 0 Comments

Last week, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed legislation establishing texting while driving as a “primary offense.” New York's initial anti-texting law, promulgated in 2009, made texting while driving only a secondary offense, which meant police needed to pull drivers over for another offense first in order to ticket for texting. The upgrade of the law will make it easier for police to enforce the ban on texting while driving since police can now pull over a driver simply for texting.

New York's new law aligns it with Connecticut, which has had a law since the middle of 2010 that made texting while driving a primary offense.
