New York’s leaders and its citizens have recognized the massive danger that distracted driving poses and have taken efforts to crack down on those who willfully engage in driving while distracted.
From a 2018 press release posted on the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles’ website, the New York’s Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee (GTSC) acknowledged National Distracted Driving Awareness Month, and the governor launched a state-wide campaign to stymie distracted driving, dubbed Operation Hang Up. Launched on April 17, the program issued over 2,000 tickets to those who were engaged in driving distracted, which included texting, making phone calls, or using mobile devices for other purposes

However, the threat of tickets and other fines do not appear to have put any serious dent in the prevalence of distracted driving in New York.
