New Traffic Penalty for Texting While Driving In NY

Posted by: Nikole Wynn Posted Date: 08/14/2013

As of June 1, 2013, the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles has implemented new penalties for texting while driving violations.

Previously, a texting while driving conviction anywhere in NY carried 3 points on an individual's driving record. As of June 1, 2013, texting while driving in New York now carries 5 points on an individuals driving record, and is considered a "Serious Driving Offense".

As always, it is important to consider the safety of those you share the roads with. This new penalty is meant to deter texting while driving on our roads.
