Sure, it was a huge inconvenience for people like me, who like to dangerously multitask while commuting. But we had to respect the purpose of the new law: to keep us safe.
Now the city wants to ban crossing the street while holding — not just using — an electronic device. That includes cell phones, video games, iPods and even cameras.
Doesn’t that sound, well, a bit extreme?
What next, banning pedestrians from chewing gum, drinking a Diet Coke, twirling a baton?
Anyone else got a problem with this proposed bill?
