Free Coffee & Tea Tonight to Thruway Drivers
All lanes are open through January 3 of next year — a few days from now — in accordance with Governor Cuomo’s Drivers First Initiative.
If you’re on the Thruway and need to take five or stretch your legs, then stop at any of its 27 travel plazas for free hot coffee and tea from 11 p.m. tonight until 7 a.m. tomorrow morning.
“Thruway’s New Year’s Eve tradition is an excellent way to encourage motorists to take a break during their travels and to promote safe driving during the busy holiday season,” said Thruway Authority Executive Director Robert L. Megna. “It is crucial that motorists stay alert and drive safely not only during the holidays, but year round.”
Reminder: there is no stopping along highway shoulders except in emergencies. For real-time info about traffic conditions on the 570-mile highway, click here.
Wishing you happy and healthy New Year! May the best of last year be the worst of next, and remember, please don’t drink and drive.
I’d like to know what you think.
