Texting While Driving

Did you know that using a hand-held cell phone while driving is a 5 point ticket? This includes talking on the phone and/or texting. The minimum financial penalty is $50 and if you receive 3 of these violations in an 18 month period, the maximum fine can be $450 and a suspension of your license. For probationary drivers and junior drivers, 1 cell phone violation will result in the automatic suspension of their license for 120 days.
