Texting While Driving Accidents
New York City Texting Car Crash Victims Need a Tough Personal Injury Attorney
Though texting behind the wheel is illegal in New York, drivers are pulled over all the time for texting throughout the region.

But even though it’s a three-point, primary traffic offense, with a fine of up to $150 per driving-while-texting ticket, New York roads remain full of texting dangers.

Hand-held devices at the wheel are illegal in New York—and yet drivers continue to risk taking lives by being distracted as they drive, particularly drivers aged 16 to 20 years old. The U.S. Department of Transportation released a study that showed young drivers were more likely to use cell phones at the wheel and that 30 percent of them admitted to texting while driving. Texting teens are all over New York roads—on the Belt Parkway in Brooklyn, Grand Central Parkway in Queens, Sunrise Highway in Nassau County and 287 in Rockland County. A driver of any age can cause a texting fatality.
