Gov. Cuomo Unveils Texting Zones Along NYS Thruway & Highways

Gov. Cuomo unveiled texting zones along the New York State Thruway and Highways that will give drivers the opportunity to pull over and use their cell phones.
ALBANY, N.Y. - Gov. Cuomo unveiled texting zones along the New York State Thruway and Highways that will give drivers the opportunity to pull over and use their cell phones.

A press release says existing Park-n-Ride facilities, rest stops, and parking areas will dual-function as texting zones. Signs will be placed along the highway to inform drivers where the zones are located.

"With this new effort, we are sending a clear message to drivers that there is no excuse to take your hands off the wheel and eyes off the road because your text can wait until the next Texting Zone," Gov. Cuomo said.
