Text-Walking May Become Illegal in Illinois

Thankfully a majority of you haven't had any walking while texting incidents, and knock-on-wood, I haven't either. Well in Illinois this past January, a bill was introduced that would ban people from using their cell phones while crossing the street.

"This legislation is not laughable. On the surface it's like, 'Oh wow, what is this?' But it's becoming more and more of a common problem with people haplessly crossing an intersection and almost killing themselves."

Says Ken Dunkin, the representative who introduced the bill. Dunkin also mentioned that there have already been two deaths of two New York City pedestrians who were said to have been walking and texting.

The Chicago Tribune notes how the brain's ability to multitask makes text-walking possible, even though it's a delicate balancing act. I honestly don't know what I'd do if California banned texting while walking, because texting most likely consists of emailing too, which I love doing to and from work!
