County officials push new texting while driving crackdown
County officials are making a new push to crack down on people who text while they are driving.
With the holidays fast approaching, more people will be out on the road, making local authorities worried that the state law that bans texting and driving will be ignored.
Westchester District Attorney Janet DiFiore has teamed up with Nationwide Insurance to come up with a driving simulator to teach Westchester teens how dangerous it is to text and drive.
Since the law was signed, police in Westchester County have issued 165 summons to drivers caught as of mid-September.
