New York Cell Phone Usage Laws

Under Sections 1225-C and 1225-D of the Vehicle and Traffic codes, it is unlawful to talk or text on a hand-held cell phone or any other portable device while driving.

The law spells out the following as illegal cell phone usage:

  • Talking
  • Composing, sending, receiving, or retrieving email or text messages
  • Accessing or browsing the Web
  • Looking at, taking, or sending photos
  • Playing internet games

The penalties for a cell phone ticket include a fine of $50 to $200 for a first or second offense and a fine of $50 to $450 for a third or subsequent offense within 18 months. Cell phone tickets will also result in 5 points added to your driving record.

You may only use a hand-held cell phone in the case of an emergency call to the police, an emergency responder, hospital or medical office, or fire department. Hands-free cell phone usage is permitted.

Once you engage our firm for representation, we can usually appear in court for you with a strong defense in pursuit of a favorable outcome. Due to time limits regarding your ticket, we urge you to contact us immediately so that we can get to work on handling all necessary steps of the defense procedure.
