Legal Use of a Cell Phone while Driving
New York law prohibits using a mobile telephone to engage in a call while operating a vehicle in motion on a public road. You can push the buttons, but not hold the phone to your year. Keep in mind that another closely related law prohibits texting or operating an app while driving.
It’s not illegal to use a hand-held cell phone or other device in stopped traffic or in a parked car. Hands-free phones are also fine to use while driving.
How You Can Fight a Cell Phone Ticket
A lawyer can look at your ticket and check it for errors or “defects” that make it invalid enough that a judge will probably dismiss the case. Technically, that would mean that you are found “not guilty.” Without a defective ticket or some other really convincing evidence, a judge is unlikely to dismiss your case based on your word against the ticketing officer’s.
Otherwise, you can try to get the charge reduced to something with a less permanent effect on your record and insurance premiums. Expect that you will still have to pay a fine in these cases, though.
