What do you think of this law?
If you’re crossing the street while texting in Honolulu, you could be fined up to $35. That’s because Hawaii’s capital just became the first major US city to pass a “distracted walking” law. And it doesn’t just stop at texting. If you’re taking pics with your digital camera or playing your Nintendo Switch, you’re also at risk for getting a ticket, starting Oct. 25.
While Honolulu is the first major city to pass a law like this, Fort Lee, NJ, did something similar a few years back. This also speaks to a larger trend in states banning phone use while driving.
