Since November of 2001, it has been illegal to talk on the phone while driving in the state of New York. Likewise, texting while driving has been illegal in New York since 2011. Distracted driving is a major cause of auto accidents, injuries and fatalities across the country every year and the use of cell phones for calling and texting has continued to be a major source of such incidents. However, distracted driving doesn't end there.
A person could engage in a number of distracting activities while driving, such as eating, applying makeup, or even talking with a passenger. It is a point of debate as to whether or not talking on the phone and talking with a passenger have a same level of distraction. Many studies show that they are very similar, but the state of New York has yet to outlaw driver-passenger conversations. Therefore, you have every right to fight a traffic ticket for talking while driving. The best way to build and present a strong defense would be to hire a New York traffic ticket attorney immediately, so call the offices of Gannes & Musico, LLP.
