Police Crack Down on Cell Phone Use While Driving in Staten Island!

The New York Police Department is on a three week long traffic crackdown that has netted Staten Islanders 398 summons and two suspended licenses, according to the Staten Island Advance. The traffic crackdown began in response to the flurry of deadly car accidents that Staten Island has endured in recent weeks. According to figures given by the NYPD, the most common violation has been cell phone use while operating a motor vehicle, which made up over a third of the 398 summons given! 

Cell phone use while driving is not only extremely dangerous but highly illegal. If you are pulled over for cell phone use while driving, you will not only incur a hefty fine but gain three points on your license for a first offense. Additional offenses will carry higher fines and additional points. These points can easily add up to a suspended or even revoked license. If you have been pulled over for using a cell phone while driving or a different traffic expense, you should contact an experience traffic attorney. Feel free to contact my office at (718) 317-5007.
