Honolulu says no to "phone zombies"

Don’t text while walking! In Honolulu, Hawaii’s largest city, staring at your phone while crossing the street is now illegal. The city has passed a law that allows the police to fine pedestrians up to $35 dollars for staring at their phones while crossing the road. The bill states that “no pedestrian shall cross a street or highway while viewing a mobile electronic device”. “This is really milestone legislation that sets the bar high for safety,” Brandon Elefante, the member of the city council who proposed the bill told the New York Times. In the United States, pedestrian deaths rose 11% in 2016 to nearly 6,000, according to a report from the Governors Highway Safety Association, which cited “an increase in walking as a primary mode of transportation, and distraction due to growing use of smartphone technology” as potential factors for the jump.
