Texting While Driving

Texting While Driving in Nassau County

As the use of electronic devices continues to increase, drivers are constantly bombarded with distractions. From simply glancing down at your phone to see a text, to using the GPS feature on your phone or car, cellphone use while driving can prove to be a costly criminal offense.

At the Nassau County law firm of Lerner & Lerner, P.C., our texting while driving defense attorneys have extensive experience protecting clients through the legal process. In New York state, a driver cannot use a hand-held phone, send a text or send an email while driving. Law enforcement can issue a traffic ticket, which can result in fines and surcharges. You need a skilled defender on your side who understands traffic violation laws and can protect your driving record.

Serious Penalties Are At Stake

While it might seem like a minor offense, texting while driving can result in points being added to your DMV driving record. Drivers who receive 11 points in an 18-month period are at risk of losing their driving privileges. It is crucial that you contact a skilled defense lawyer who can fight to protect your driving record.

It is important to note that New York has recently increased the penalty for a texting while driving conviction. The fines have increased by $50 in all instances, and the point violation has been increased from three points to five. In an era when individuals rely on the ability to drive to work, school, day care or for daily errands, the loss of driving privileges can be devastating. Contact our firm for a strong defense.
