Police On Long Island Cracking Down On Drivers Talking, Texting On Cell Phones

LONG ISLAND (WCBS 880) — Police in Suffolk County are on the lookout for drivers illegally using their cell phones and that includes texting while driving.

LISTEN: WCBS 880’s Sophia Hall reports 

Suffolk County’s police commissioner said that 20 percent of all fatal crashes are because of illegal cell phone use, which leads to distracted driving. This week, officers are cracking down on drivers illegally using their cell phones.

Remember, not only is driving while holding a cell phone illegal, but so is texting while driving. If caught, you could face a $150 fine and three points on your license.
