1. At wayside areas, if well removed from access to off right-of-way public telephone stations.

2. At other isolated areas sufficiently removed from existing off right-of-way public telephone stations as to impair the safety and convenience of traffic, provided that:

a. No private land is available or suitable for location of booth;

b. The location meets all safety requirements as to sight distance, access roads and parking; and

c. All costs incidental to providing turnout and parking area are borne by the telephone company.
