NYPD Issues 9,016 Tickets During 24-Hour Crackdown


nypdNew York City police issued a whopping 9,016 tickets during a 24-hour crackdown on phoning-while-driving.  Department spokesman Paul Browne says that compares to 500 on a typical day.  The ticket blitz ended today. But the law is still the law. Get caught driving while using a hand held phone and you could be fined $120. Taxi drivers are held to an even higher standard. They can receive a $200 summons from the Taxi and Limousine Commission for using even a hands-free phone while driving.

The NYPD said hands-free phones were not a focus of its 24-hour crackdown.

  1. It’s against the law, Harry. And have you heard of Chilul HaShem? I already understand that you don’t care that it is dangerous and that you can’t easily use turn signals (Do you anyway? It’s also a state law and a major act of Chilul HaShem.) Don’t worry about the police officer’s time; worry about your Neshama.
