Ban Proposed On Walking While Talking, Listening To iPod – News

A state senator from Brooklyn said on Tuesday he plans to introduce legislation that would ban people from using an MP3 player, cell phone, Blackberry or any other electronic device while crossing the street in either New York City or Buffalo.

I would think passing a  law prohibiting doing your make-up or reading while driving would be more important.  Perhaps, we should also sponsor a law that bans music in cars because it is a distraction, especially if it’s too loud.  We should probably look at eating while driving and walking as potential threats to personal safety as well.  Talking to another person while driving or crossing the street is also fairly dangerous because it draws attention away from the task at hand so perhaps State Senator Carl Kruger can examine these issues as well and include them in the proposed bill.
