A Fine For….Texting?

If you thought common sense fell into the fountain with the lady in Pennsylvania, maybe you’re right!

Legislators in New York and Arkansas are considering bills that would fine pedestrians for use of “personal electronic devices” as they enter crosswalks and other areas that come in conjunction with roads.  Legislators in these states cite two examples of people who were killed in part because they either stepped off a curb in front of traffic, or in the case of South Carolina, a man was killed jogging on the beach when he was struck by a glider type aircraft making a crash landing.   Legislators claim when people are “plugged in” to their electronic or social networking devices, they do not pay enough attention to their surroundings.  While we certainly believe people should pay attention to what they are going, isn’t that more personal responsibility as opposed to having someone fine you for being “plugged in”?  What are YOUR thoughts?
