Ithaca, NY Police Suspends Distracted Driving Course

Drivers that have received a ticket for texting and driving can take the class to avoid points on their license. The class is being temporarily suspended. Learning the new bail reform laws has taken extra resources from departments. “So right now it’s on a temporary pause, we just don’t have the resources available to continue with it,” said Ithaca Police Senior Deputy Chief Vincent Monticello. “But we’re hopeful that we may be able to institute it sometime this year.”
