Learn about Orange County STOP DWI:

  • Regulation change effective June 1, 2013: The NYS Department of Motor Vehicles will increase the number of points issued against an individual’s driving record upon the conviction for texting-while-driving and cell-phone related infractions from the current three points to five points.
  • Proposed legislation: The Governor's proposed legislation will impose the same penalties on drivers with probationary and junior licenses for texting-while-driving that they now receive for speeding and reckless driving: 60-day suspensions for first convictions and revocations of 60 days (for junior licenses) or 6 months (for probationary licenses)
