New York State Senator Carl Kruger has proposed a new law that would make it illegal (US$100 fine) to use cellphones, Blackberries, video games, iPods, or other electronic devices when crossing the street, reports The Associated Press. “He cited the death of a 21-year-old man who was listening to music when he stepped off a curb and was hit by a bus in Brooklyn in September, and the death of a 23-year-old iPod listener last month.”
