The incident took place on Tuesday on Forshay Road.  The unidentified police officer was stopped in traffic when his car was hit from behind by a vehicle driven by a 30 year old Monsey resident.  He sustained non-life threatening injuries and was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital in Suffern by Ramapo Valley Ambulance.

The woman told a police officer investigating the incident that she was reading an article on her phone when the accident occurred. She was ticketed for following too closely and for use of a portable electronic device while operating a vehicle.

Drivers on my street including the yeshiva bus drivers speed while texting. The are finally getting involved. 10 kids in a beaten van with a distracted mom is disastrous but no one cares.

Can't really blame her, as she was looking at the new Forshey/Monsey blog site "Acher's Musings". Still watch where you are going.

People who talk/text on their phones while driving are just as dangerous as drunk drivers. Hence, they should be treated as drunk drivers, and should be promptly arrested, and have their licenses suspended, period!!

You can wait for me to get a ticket for texting while driving, cuz it aint happening. Unlike you, I dont believe that the laws we have are merely suggestions and does not apply to the monsey frummies. Just as I mentioned yesterday, I was at the evergreen lot last night, and once again, some idiot turned the opposite way and we almost had a head on collision. And of course, he was on the phone. The town enforcemnt cop was there last night. When I asked him why he doesnt ticket these people, he said "Private Property, the owners have to request it". So keep going guys, until, chas vesholom, you hurt someone.
