Texting and Walking… should it be banned?

31 Jan

It’s very clear how dangerous driving and texting can be, and the laws against it are clearly a no-brainer.  Now New York is proposing a ban on texting and walking.  Sounds a little crazy, but I’m sure by know we’ve all seen the “fountain lady” who fell into the mall fountain while texting and walking.  There have also been accidents while people have been  listening to their iPods and not heard traffic, and been hit or killed.

I’m not sure if I’m ready for a full ban on texting and walking, but I personally wouldn’t do it while in a busy area (like the mall) or on the street.  Can we make a law about common sense?
