A bill has been proposed to ban the use of iPods and cell phones when crossing New York City streets. A law forbidding chewing gum and walking surely can't be far behind!
Implications - Senator Carl Kruger is planning to introduce a legislation to ban the use of MP3s, cell phones and other technological device while crossing the streets. This will apply to New York and other big cities in America. This idea came from the fact that two deaths have occurred in Kruger's district due to listening to an iPod while crossing the street.
This won't be a favorite move among citizens considering how many people tend to carry their iPods everywhere they go.
