Suffolk County, home to the Hamptons and other playgrounds of the wealthy, has banned drivers from using hand-held phones except for emergency calls. "We are targeting a careless driving habit that didn't exist 10 years ago," County Executive Robert Gaffney said. After Jan. 1, violators will be fined $150. The county is believed to be the first in the nation to enact such a law, though there are similar local ordinances in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

A state judge Friday blocked Suffolk County from implementing a unique law regulating use of video display terminals in the workplace, prompting the Long Island county to appeal to a higher court. State Supreme Court Justice John Copertino issued a preliminary injunction after lawyers for area businesses said that federal and state workers' compensation laws already protect workers who use the machines and that there is no proof VDTs are harmful.
