IN THE NAME OF THE LAW... Turn that Ipod off!
I see it all now... Should they not just tell people to be more careful? I mean its common sense to always be alert when crossing the road.

Absolutely correct, legislation will never replace common sense.

Absolutely agree. Lack of common sense helps keep the gene pool from getting too polluted.

Unfortunately, lack of common sense also helps keep the jails and prisons full. It's been pointed out too that pedestrians in the roadway generally have the right of way. This ban really does need to fail, only because of it's intrusive nature. Mr. Kruger is right in pointing out that there is a problem. An alternative approach would be to raise awareness that pedestrians need take it upon themselves to be safe. Maybe the Boy Scouts will take up assisting Ipod users across the street. Maybe life insurance premiums for Ipod users should be increased since they seem to pose such a risk to themselves.

|Kruger declared. "You want to walk in the park, enjoy it. You want to jog around a jogging path, all the more power to you, but you should not be crossing streets and endangering yourself and the lives of others." |

Yeah, the jaywalking laws are universal and those seem to work, good idea! :-/
Pedestrians aren't the problem. It's the ones with cell phones behind the wheel, comandeering a 3500 lb.+ battering ram.
We already have too much legislation. I say we start random executions. What the heck, that's got as much chance as this does.
