New York is ratcheting up the penalties that younger drivers can expect to face if they’re caught texting at the wheel or otherwise using their cellphone in any regard. Both the Assembly and the Senate have voted to approve a law that would affect persons who have probationary or junior licenses or permits. If such persons get pulled over and are cited for texting and driving, they could find themselves with their licenses suspended for two months. If a subsequent violation then takes place within the next half year, that person would lose their license for six months (or two months if the individual has a junior license).
