New Jersey Institutes "Safe Phone Zones" Along Highways

The state Department of Transportation has partnered with GEICO for a new statewide sponsorship of Rest Areas and Scenic Overlooks, rebranding them as "Safe Phone Zones."  As part of a national effort to encourage drivers to pull into a safe location to use their phones for calling, texting and accessing mobile apps, New Jersey has designated 14 Rest Areas and Scenic Overlooks throughout the state as Safe Phone Zones.  New, informative signs have been installed along the highways leading to these facilities.
