is spending about $4 million to equip the state's 53 highway rest
stops with security cameras and call boxes - a first in the nation,
allows travelers to call the state police if they feel threatened
and will give police a video record of crimes. The equipment is
supposed to be in place by mid-October.
call boxes will be set up at each rest stop along interstate highways,
indoors or out. If people are in danger, they push a button which
in turn alerts authorities and sends them pictures from the camera.
