New York (WENY) - Drivers better look at the road instead of their phones this week because police are cracking down on the texting and driving. Troopers will be stepping up patrols on new york roadways to nab people using cellphones while driving. “Operation Hang Up" started Monday and will continue through Sunday. Police say texting or talking on mobile devices continue to be growing problems despite the clear hazards. Cell phone use and texting are responsible for a significant proportion of traffic crashes, injuries and deaths.
