NYS Police Will Target NY Drivers on Cell Phones

Apr 23, 2012

NYS police are on the lookout for drivers illegally using cell phones and other electronic devices.

"Operation Hang Up" starts Monday and runs through next Sunday.

The first "Operation Hang Up" campaign took place over last year's Thanksgiving holiday. Troopers ticketed more than 800 drivers.

The enforcement campaign is funded through a grant from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
