New York State introduces “Texting Zones” on the highways

Posted by: Jennifer Cefai (3 years, 1 month ago)

Highways in New York State now have texting zones within them. Unveiled by Governor Andrew Cuomo, this is a measure designed to combat the number of fatalities and injuries caused by texting whilst driving. Many signs at rest stops were modified to show that they are ‘texting zones’, using wording like ‘It can wait – Text Stop, 5 miles’.

Approximately 300 signs have been placed along the highway to show drivers that they can text safely and legally in New York State. Whether this measure will spread to other American states, and maybe beyond US borders, we have yet to see.
