Texting and driving being illegal? I get you there. But texting while walking receiving the same fate? Insanity. Not being able to listen to your iPod on or near a road? Insanity as well. As if state senators didn’t already have enough to worry about, now a select few want to put a ban on texting while walking, and listening to music while walking or biking. Violators would face a $100 fine if caught in the act of one of these heinous crimes. How can this possibly be dangerous to anyone surrounding someone doing these things? The answer is it can’t. It boggles my mind how people like this get elected into a governmental position. Why don’t they go ahead and ban eating, talking, and thinking while walking while they are at it? Forget about a potential murder happening in an area of high crime, let’s keep X amount of police officers on patrol near the city’s biggest crosswalks to ensure nobody is texting or listening to music while crossing the street. Good thinking government. It is no wonder why they never get anything done these days. Everyone is trying to pass petty laws to make a name for themselves, even if they will be largely ridiculed for doing so. It is getting out of hand.
