A new bill proposed in New York could make walking and texting while crossing the street illegal.
According to CNN, the New York State Senate seeks to ban pedestrians from using portable electronic devices while crossing the road. The statewide ban would include texting, checking emails, and browsing the internet, with exceptions for emergencies.
Fines for the crime could range from $25 to $250.
Honolulu, Hawaii has been enforcing a similar law since 2017.
