About Cell Phone Traffic Offenses

If a police officer believes that he or she saw you using your phone while driving, you could get a ticket for it. Unfortunately, police offers are rarely listening to hear out why your phone was out to begin with. A dedicated and tenacious traffic ticket defense firm can assist you if this situation occurs.

Officers can write a cell phone ticket if they believe you were:

  • Reading or writing texts
  • Talking on the phone
  • Reading or writing emails
  • Browsing the internet
  • Looking at pictures
  • Playing games

These situations exclude trying to contact medical or emergency personnel, including dialing 911. Our Westchester County cell phone violation lawyer has experience representing even the most complicated traffic ticket cases. Our firm truly cares about the outcome of your case, which is why we offer free consultations and after-hour availability for appointments. You can feel confident putting your case in our capable hands.

Consequences of a Cell Phone Ticket Conviction

It is in your best interest to fight a ticket that was wrongfully given to you. Most people won’t bother and are just “willing to pay the fines,” but in the long run these charges end up costing you more than a single fine. The consequences of a ticket could put your driver’s license at risk and affect your eligibility for future employment.

Punishments for a cell phone ticket include:

  • Adding 5 points to your DMV driving record
  • Between $50-$150 in fines
  • Driver’s license suspension for 120 days

If you accumulate 11 points on your DMV record within an 18 month period, your driver’s license may be suspended. If you have wrongfully been given a texting or phone violation, contacting a Westchester County cell phone ticket lawyer can help you prove your innocence and fight for your driving privileges.
