New York Distracted Driving Laws

A total of 46 states—in addition to the District of Columbia and certain U.S. territories—enforce laws that ban drivers from text messaging on the road.

In New York, the laws against distracted driving are clear:

  • Ban on hand-held devices for drivers of all ages
  • Ban on text messaging for drivers of all ages

These strict bans on using cellphones and texting behind the wheel are primary laws. This means authorities can ticket drivers solely for using a phone or texting while driving. In some states, officers need to witness another offense or violation before citing drivers for distracted driving violations.
