Can You Text On Your Phone While Stopped at a Red Light Without Getting a Ticket?

Can you or can't you???

If you're unsure, you're in good company.  Turns out the police and the courts are both unclear as well.

However, a new bill aims to close that legal loophole by banning drivers in New York from using their phone while stopped at a red light, stop sign, railroad crossing or during traffic delays.

In other words, if you're in the car and the ignition is on, you can be cited for texting.

"Remember to contact if you get a traffic ticket...because it's not the end of the road.”®
