NEW YORK (WFLX) - This summer, New York will have a new way to help people who just can't resist texting while in the car.

The state will set up certain areas along New York highways as texting zones. The state will also provide signs that will advertise the texting zones.

The texting zones will be a collection of the state's park and ride facilities and other rest stops.
