Latest New York Cell Phone Crackdown Begins Monday

‘Operation Hang Up’ starts Monday on Thruway:
An initiative aiming to increase enforcement of the state law banning cell phone use while driving will be in effect April 11-14.

It’s the fifth time that “Operation Hang Up” will be enforced by The New York State Thruway Authority and New York Police...

As noted here, new penalties for cell phone usage while driving were recently put in place by the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles. In addition to fines and surcharges, tickets for cell phone use can raise drivers' insurance rates.

Motorists should take care to avoid tickets and, if they receive a ticket, consider contacting an attorney.
