Illegal to text and walk while crossing the street in Honolulu

Attached Image It is now illegal to view your phone and walk while crossing the street in Honolulu. Pedestrians will be fined up to S$48 for infringing the law.

It is the first major city to implement such a law and the city says it is rolling out the law in a bid to improve safety.

City Council member Brandon Elefante told The New York Time that “This is really milestone legislation that sets the bar high for safety.” Studies have shown that people who use their phones while walking are nearly four times more likely to jaywalk or not look both ways when crossing a street, thus making them more likely to be involved in road accidents.
