State Senator Carl Krueger of NY is introducing a bill up in Albany that will impose a $100 fine to anybody crossing the street in NYC or "other large" cities in the state whilst wearing an iPod or similar music player, talking on a cell phone, or using any other "electronic device".

Sheesh. :rolleyes: Glad to see that they've got the important issues dealt with.

Didn't Bangor Maine pass a law fining anyone smoking in a car with a sub-18 year old present?

Asinine. NYC needs to become MORE pedestrian-friendly, not less.
