Cuomo to Sign Texting Bill

Governor Cuomo is expected to sign a bill today that will further crack down on texting while driving.   The new law increases the penalty for texting behind the wheel or talking on a cell phone while driving for drivers with probationary or junior licenses to a 60 day suspension for a first offense.  A second offense within six months would revoke a probationary license for six months and a junior license for 60 days.  A 2011 study showed 45 percent of students 16 and older texted or emailed while driving in the previous 30 days.
