A statewide crusade against texting while driving spurred law enforcement agencies, in the Southern Tier and across New York state, to hand out record numbers of tickets last year for texting behind the wheel.

Fines for texting and driving can be as much as $150 for the first offense, $200 for the second offense and $400 each time beyond that within 18 months.
