By now we are all aware or should be, that texting while driving is illegal! What about when you come to a red light? Did you ever sneak in a text just because the vehicle wasn't in motion?  Well Governor Cuomo wants to make sure it's illegal by tightening restrictions on the existing laws.


According to WGRZ just recently the Governor proposed new changes to the state's vehicle and traffic law. One of those changes would add more restrictions to the use of electronic devices while driving, regardless if the vehicle is in motion or not. Cuomo also wants to ban the use of cell phone use, including using hand free devices, for those under the age of 18-years-old!
