New York State is taking an unconventional step toward curbing distracted driving by installing special "Texting Zones" along the thruway and state highways. Motorists in need of a texting break can look for designated pull-off areas to park and safely use their mobile device. Existing Park-n-Ride facilities, rest stops, and parking areas along the roads will be equipped with Texting Zone signage, each serving double duty as one of 91 locations across the state.
