New York Drivers: Put Down the Cell Phone or Pick Up Two Points

New York drivers should be aware of new license penalties for driving while using a handheld cellphone. As of February 16, the New York Department of Motor Vehicles plans to begin assessing two points to any motorist's license if the driver is ticketed for distracted driving while using a cell phone. New York drivers who text while driving already face the two-point penalty. The New York DMV's decision to also penalize those who make cell phone calls while driving is an effort to bring the laws on distracted driving for texting and making or receiving calls on cell phones into line.

Football Star Faces DWI Charges

New York Jets wide receiver Braylon Edwards was driving in Manhattan last September when he was pulled over by police. Edwards was returning home with several teammates from a charity fundraiser, but his Land Rover had tinted windows, which police were on the lookout for on the west side of Manhattan during early morning DWI checks. Smelling alcohol on Edwards' breath, he was given a breathalyzer test and the result was a 0.16 percent, which was twice the legal limit in New York. Edwards was arrested and charged with drunk driving.
