Put the cell phone down! New York’s TimesUnion.com is reporting that a woman was recently arrested for texting while driving. Apparently, a 22 year-old woman was stopped at an intersection, when an officer approached her car to ask why she was stopped in the middle of a busy street instead of moving on. The woman said was texting, and the officer also found the woman was drunk.

We’ve been hearing for awhile now that texting a driving don’t mix and may impair your reactions, potentially causing accidents. Notwithstanding the fact that the woman above was drunk, you too could be fined or arrested for texting while driving, Although New York does not have a law against texting while driving, many states have recently passed such legislation or are planning on it in the near future.

Be careful when you drive, and don’t text. No only could you face legal consequences, but you could cause an accident and hurt others, potentially even loved ones who are in the car with you.
