Now I think I've heard everything!
Can you believe this report about a move to ban iPod use when crossing the street in crosswalks in "big cities" only across New York State?
The penalty: A $100 fine, if you please.
Now how about those savvy potential lawbreakers who decide to forego the crosswalks and jay walk instead. Is that safer? Is that smarter?
I like this idea even less the more I blog on about it. (Thanks newcopy.org for the photo.)
First it was radios on the beach (yes, loud, bad music is annoying), cell-phone-in-hand use in cars (yes, can be distracting) and now this (and the rationale is?????)
Don't the legislators have anything better to do than pick up gadget-loving citizens?
Is this law really going to accomplish anything?
Sure police officers will be particularly vigilant about enforcing this one ...
Three thunbs down would be a "strike out" in my book ...
What do you think about this?
