Everyone knows that it’s against the law to use your cell phone while driving, right? Then why do so many people do it? NYS law states, “If you use a hand-held mobile telephone while you drive, except to call 911 or to contact medical, fire or police personnel about an emergency, you can receive a traffic ticket and pay a maximum fine of $100 and mandatory surcharges and fees of up to $85.” You can earn three points for texting while driving, three points for cell phone use in general, and five points for reckless driving, which your probably guilty of too if you’re playing with your cell-phone. Total - 11 points and you lose your license. Quite frankly, if you are using your cell-phone while driving, you should lose your license.
