Following an article about the strict new texting while driving laws in New York, Millennium Hyundai offered their comments and weighed in on the changes.
New York (I-Newswire) September 17, 2013 - Millennium Hyundai commented on a Long Island.com article by Joe Randazzo, regarding the strict new texting while driving laws by the State of New York that is now in effect.
According to the LongIsland.com article, "Governor Cuomo instructed the Department of Motor Vehicles to give harsher penalties by raising the number of points to those distracted while driving. The points have increased from two to five."
The article states that the number of accidents directly caused by texting while driving has tripled over the last seven years at an alarming rate at a 143% increase. The article mentions that at teenagers are the biggest offenders of this law, with 43% of teenagers admitting they have texted while driving.
According to Governor Cuomo, "I am hopeful that every driver who got a ticket for looking at their phone instead of the road gets the message that this reckless behavior won't be tolerated. Getting a ticket teaches young drivers this lesson the easy way - no parent should have to experience the hard way." The article states that with the recent changes in many NYS driving laws, New York has the nation's toughest laws against driving.
Tim Levin, Social Media Coordinator at Queens Hyundai provider, Millennium Hyundai, offered his thoughts and comments on the new texting while driving laws. "I love that NYS has increased the number of points put on your license when ticketed for texting while driving, as well as dishing out a fine on top of that," said Levin. "I was rear-ended not too long ago but a younger driver who was texting while driving. Thankfully there were no injuries or major damage, but it just goes to show how dangerous the act of texting while driving can really be."
