Don't Go On a Road Trip This Summer Without Reading This
Planning a family road trip this summer to some beautiful and fun spots? Driving to see friends in another state? Here are a few steps to take to ensure you stay safe and out of legal trouble:
1. Check the laws about cellphone use before driving to another state in the U.S. or in another country. Here's a list of countries and U.S. states that ban cellphone use while driving: http://www.cellular-news.com/car_bans/
2. Be sure you have paid all traffic tickets--incurred in both New York State and from other states in which you've traveled--before heading off on a road trip in the U.S. If, in the past, you received a traffic ticket in another state and never paid it and you get stopped again by traffic cops when you drive there, they will be able to see your past traffic ticket delinquency on record and your license to drive in that state may be jeopardized.
3. Research traffic laws of states in which you'll be driving before you embark on your road trip. Laws about traffic violations vary from state to state so it's best to be aware of what infractions you might unintentionally incur so you stay on the right side of the law: https://traffic.findlaw.com/traffic-tickets/state-traffic-laws.html
