New York Installs 'Texting Zones' Along Its Highways


Because this is the sad world we live in, New York has begun repurposing 91 of the state's Park-N-Ride lots and rest stops to include "text stop" signs so motorists know they're a safe place to pull over and text instead of doing it while driving. Of course, if you actually need a sign to tell you a parking lot or rest stop is a good place to pull over and text you probably shouldn't be driving. Or texting -- not even from bed at night. Holy shit I think I just mass-texted a dick pic.

Thanks to Pyrblaze, who texts while driving the old fashioned way: not texting and instead just going over in his head what he'd like to say to the person when he calls them after returning home safely.

There are Comments.

    FUCKING WASTE OF TAXPAYER MONEY (MY taxpayer money since I live in this dumbass city)

    I'm just gonna stop working

  • Mister Cerberus

    Why exactly do they need to specify that the area is for texting? Why not just say it's an area where it's okay to stop?

  • Rico

    oooor you texting pricks could wait until you get the fuck where you're going.

  • People are stupid and need to be reminded of common sense

  • boooo!

    There should also be a 'GPS-ing zone', where motorists can pull over and safely look for a 'texting zone' in their area.
