"Tuning in and tuning out can be a fatal combination on the streets of New York," says New York state Senator Carl Kruger (D-Brooklyn). That's why he wants to make it illegal to use any electronic device while crossing the street. The idea may not actually become a law, but if it does, it could mean a $100 ticket for listening to an MP3 player or calling a friend when you're walking from block to block.
What would you think of a law like this? And let's say you get caught texting while walking in a place where that isn't allowed - what would you say to defend yourself?
