New York State Cell Phone Crackdown Begins Tuesday
Posted By: Athan Kompos
BUFFALO, N.Y. - Starting Tuesday, you can expect to see more New York State Troopers on the Thruway looking for people talking on a cell phone.
The State Police cell phone crackdown runs from Tuesday until Friday.
In 2009, a similar initiative resulted in 816 tickets being issued to drivers who violated the New York State cell phone law.
The initiative will begin just days after Two On Your Side asked the community to sign the Pledge 2 Hang Up. It is a promise not to talk on the phone or text while driving.
