Honolulu imposes smartphone ban for pedestrians

Honolulu has just passed a legislation prohibiting pedestrians to use their smartphones while walking. Called “Distracted Walking”, pedestrians with their eyes on their phones while crossing the streets will be penalized and will be subject to a fine.

Violators will be fined $15 to $99 once caught.

Some residents do not agree with the bill and find them intrusive. Instead, education and proper information to citizens is more effective said some residents.
