There is further discussion of this (I didn't put it there...) on the Non-Interstate thread. (Probably should be on Interstates...)

A bit nanny-statish perhaps, but I assume it's targeted not at people like yours truly who are capable of going a few hours (or a few days...) without texting, but at those who'd rather endanger themselves and others by texting at 60 mph than be cut off from communication for a few minutes. So, provide them a place to park and thereby hopefully discourage them from endangering the public.

On general terms I agree with you but... aren't service areas and parking areas good enough for texting? Did we really need something dedicated?

EDIT: I just read the similar conversation with MichiH in the Non-Interstate thread, so no need to continue here...

EDIT2: Besides, many smartphones, even low-end, have a synthetic voice that can read sms's and even voice recognition for writing them...

Taxis drive on the road, they don't cross it.

A question for everyone: how many (international) tripoints have you been to?

I've been to all Slovenian tripoints - SLO-I-A, SLO-A-H and SLO-HR-H (approximately) - and CH-D-F (Swiss side), as well as L-D-F (drove on the bridge). That's 5 tripoints (unless driving on the Swiss A13 by a CH-A-FL tripoint also counts ).

1. D/F/L in Schengen
2. A/SK/H
3. D/F/CH in Basel
4. A/CH/FL on East bank of river Rhine

Bonus:
- Former tripoint DDR (East Germany)/BRD (West Germany)/ČSSR - now tripoint Bavaria/Saxony/CZ
- drove on Austrian and German side in the area of tripoint D/A/CH which is located on Lake Constance.

I will try to add some new ones to the list in the future

I will be in the area of the tripoint A/I/SLO next week, driving on Italian A23. If the weather would be fine, I maybe drive to the tripoint. But I won't have so much time for walking, as I want to visit Udine and Gorizia before that, and then drive all the way to Ingolstadt. I saw on Panoramio some kind of lift to the hill. I think an access point from Austria would be best to not have to drive back so much after...
To bad there is no Streetview in SLO or A

PS: anyone who's driven on the eastern Ljubljana bypass has driven through a quadripoint between (four) Ljubljana districts.

There are between 2 countries, but not 4 (unless Zambia-Zimbabwe-Botswana-Namibia is a quadripoint, but probably not).
