Thruway texting zones

Governor Cuomo has announced that there will be 91 texting zones along the Thruway where people can pull over and safely use their phones.

The story on Syracuse.com mentions that many of the zones are existing pull-offs or park and ride areas but now there will be blue signs announcing the zone and how many miles to the next zone.

This summer there were three times as many tickets issued for texting by the State Police compared to last summer.

Let’s hope folks get the message.
