Texting and Driving Statistics

Photo Groundreport.com

Statistics have been released regarding tickets on texting and driving since the law was changed in July of this year. The results?

Between July 1 and Sept. 17, troopers have issued 438 warnings while law enforcement agencies across the state have given out 542 citations.

Beginning Jan. 1, 2020, troopers will start giving out citations rather than warnings when a driver is caught holding a phone in a school or construction zone.

The cost is $60. In most cases, that is when troopers will start giving citations for texting while driving, as well. That ticket will cost drivers $30.
