Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr. (R-Merrick) today voted in favor of strengthening New York's texting while driving ban. The legislation would better enable police officers to enforce the ban by making texting while driving a primary violation. Texting while driving is currently a secondary violation, meaning law enforcement can only enforce the ban if they cite the driver for another offense, such as speeding.
The legislation was approved by the State Senate and sent to the Assembly for consideration.
