Fighting New York Cell Phone Tickets
The use of cell phones while driving and texting behind the wheel garners a great deal of attention in popular culture. Unfortunately, cell phone use is also on the minds of members of law enforcement in New York. Visitors from other states and residents of the Southern Tier frequently receive tickets related to the use of electronic devices.
