Illegal in Honolulu: Looking at a Phone While Crossing the Street
"The Honolulu City Council passed a bill Wednesday that prohibits pedestrians from looking at their mobile devices while they cross the street," reports Laura Diaz-Zuniga.
Fines will range from $15 to $99, depending on how many times offenders have run afoul of the law.
Councilmember Brandon Elefante introduced the ordinance, saying he got the idea from high school students concerned with the welfare of their peers.
