Who would ever regulate this? If you want to texted and walk just be prepared for the consequences.

Banning Texting While Walking Angelina G

Would you Ban Texting and Walking?
Banning Texting from Walking.

I disagree that they should not ban that because like that is not that much of a problem.Like for example what if your texting someone important or if that is your navigator because that has where you need to be at it has your location so i think that they should not ban it.

Reason 1: In fact, many of her classmates admitted that unless a law was passed, they probably wouldn't put their phones away when walking around town.

Reason 2: Still, there are ways to deal with the problem of distracted walking other than making them put their phones away. I think that is not even cool.

A recent law in Honolulu allows police officers to fine pedestrians between $15 and $99 for staring at their phone while crossing a street. The Hawaiian capital is believed to be the first major U.S. city to ban so-called distracted walking (though the town of Fort Lee, New Jersey, banned the practice a few years ago).
"This is really milestone legislation that sets the bar high for safety," Brandon Elefante, the Honolulu City Council member who proposed the bill, told the New York Times.

In conclusion, they should not even ban that because that is not even fare. Like if that person is like always on their phone then maybe yea because something bad can happen.
