Ticket Lawyer: Texting Violations NY May 2011 -- the New York Senate has passed a bill that enhances penalties for texting while driving. Essentially, the law makes texting while driving a primary offense. This means an officer can pull over a car for no other reason other than texting. New York’s ban on texting while driving is a two point violation. It is one of more than 30 states with a similar statute. In light of the point consequence and changes in the law, a conviction to texting while driving can cause an increase in a driver’s insurance.
