Picture this scenario. You’re driving down the road. Your 7 year old son is at little league practice. Suddenly your cell phone rings and when you look to see who is calling the little league coach’s number appears. Panic stricken, you take the call, fearing the worst. Fortunately the coach only called to tell you practice is over early and he can drop your son off at home. Unfortunately, you are now being pulled over by flashing blue lights.

In New York State you are now facing greatly enhanced penalties, including 5 points on your license. By comparison, a reckless driving conviction, which is considered by most to be a very serious offense, also carries a 5 point penalty.
Another conviction which carries 5 points is Texting while Driving. It should go without saying that it is highly dangerous to text and drive. Your attention is completely divided. You cannot drive properly when you can’t see the road. All potential penalties aside, it can be deadly.
