New York State Drivers To Take A ‘Text Stop’

Everyone knows that texting and driving is illegal and dangerous, but here’s something that might help curb this dangerous situation. New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo has unveiled some special “texting zones” on the New York State Thruway and other state highways.

In a story on News 10 ABC on the Thruway, it was reported that there will be 300 “Text Stop” signs to give motorists a place to pull over, and park so they can use their mobile devices safely. This should help to eliminate some distracted driving. There’s also more information on Governor Cuomo’s website.

If you get pulled over for texting while driving, you could end up with fines of at least $150 and five points on your driver’s license.
