SENATE TRANSPORTATION COMMITTEE APPROVES LEGISLATION TO STRENGTHEN DISTRACTED DRIVING PENALTIES FOR TEENS

     Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr. (R-Merrick), Chairman of the Senate’s Transportation Committee, today announced that the committee approved legislation to suspend the driver’s licenses of teenage drivers who text or talk on a cell phone while driving.

     “A driver’s focus should be on the road, not their phone.  Teenagers are the least experienced drivers on the road, yet they are also the most likely to engage in distracted driving.  Suspending the licenses of teens who commit a distracted driving offense would reinforce how serious and dangerous distracted driving is and give teens another reason to take their eyes and hands off their phone when behind the wheel,” said Senator Fuschillo.

SENATE TRANSPORTATION COMMITTEE HOLDS PUBLIC HEARING EXAMINING HOW TO BETTER PROTECT CHILDREN FROM DRUNK SCHOOL BUS DRIVERS

     The New York State Senate’s Transportation Committee, chaired by Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr. (R-Merrick), today held a public hearing to examine how New York State can better protect children from drunk bus drivers, including whether school buses should be equipped with ignition interlocks.

Melissa Escudero, whose son Christian was a passenger on the bus, testified at the hearing.
