For John, BLUF: Adapting government programs to technology and people. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From the blog brittius we have a post on New York state implementing "Text Stop" Parking Areas, to allow one to pull over and read and respond to text messages (or initiate text messages). This seems like a forward thinking approach to a problem we are facing. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced this change.
Hat tip to the blog Fortuna's Corner.
