Should lawmakers in New York City ban crossing a street while listening to headphones or talking
talking on your cell phone?
No. Think of deaf people. They can still cross the street, and its the same thing as listening to headphones. Just my two cents
I would say NO. Public service announcements are as far the gov. should go.
no they shouldn't but if a person gets hit by a car when doing so, they should take full blame for their actions.
I would say no. The onus is more on the motorists, it seems to me, to be careful of pedestrians rather than for pedestrians to be careful of motorists -- for the obvious reason that the motorist, safely ensconced in her car has considerably more protection.
It is quite correct for talking on handheld cell phones while driving to be banned, therefore -- because such carelessness is liable to cause them to run down a pedestrian. A careless pedestrian talking on the cell phone is not likely to endanger the motorist in his or her car.
As MikeSyrSutton says, public service announcements (as far as cell phone using pedestrians are concerned) should suffice, I think.
