New York Highways Get Texting Zones For Safety
Taking a road trip and want to send a text with your ETA? In New York, you'll have to wait until you see signs for the next "texting zone." Part of an initiative to crack down on distracted driving, New York has designated more than 90 rest stops and parking areas along state highways as safe places to stop and send text messages. Governor Andrew Cuomo unveiled 300 signs with the message "It can wait" and the number of miles to the next texting zone. If caught texting while driving, motorists can face a fine of $150 and points on their license.
