Hi - My name is Vanessa Gibson, and I chair the City Council Public Safety Committee. Yes it is against the law to talk on your cell phone while driving. The Daily News reports that in 2014 I was given such a ticket for driving and talking on my cell phone. They also say that I used my influence in the council and got the ticket quashed. That moving violation is five points on a license.
Others who were in politics have had their careers ended for doing similar things, should I resign?
