No Texting While Crossing The Street…In Honolulu

New law takes effect in October

Honolulu has passed a law making it illegal to cross a street or highway while looking at a mobile device – be it a video game, pager, laptop or smartphone. It goes into effect this fall designed to reduce pedestrian accidents. There will be a $15 to $35 for a first offence, up to $75 for  second offence and  as much as $99 for  third offence. Talking on the phone while crossing the street will still be okay.
