There's a lot of online action going on at one rest stop in Donley County. Its become a hot stop for wireless internet.
And that's a good thing because as NewsChannel 10's Blaire Arvin tells us a little travel break can make a big difference in keeping us all safer on the roads.
Driving along Highway 287 in Donley County... This is catching a lot of people's eye.
"It's very nice." He's talking about the rest stop. "There's a steady stream of people."
Free wireless internet is attracting a lot of drivers, TxDOT installed it so people can take a break.
Tyler Hopper is a user. "I think it's a good idea," he says.
He's logging on his lap top and doing exactly what TxDOT wants...
"It's for the safety of the traveling public ... 15% of Texans are killed each year due to fatigue, 71,000 are injured ... having the wireless internet is just a plus and another good reason for them to pull over and stop," Barbara Seal.
Stop before making a long journey. For Hopper, that's Houston.
