If you're walking you probably shouldn't be staring at your cell phone. Last month Honolulu, Hawaii adopted a law that sees walkers peering down at their phones getting fined, and now another U.S. city is thinking about adding the law as well-- Stamford, Connecticut. Stamford Mayor David Martin explains, "The point is, if you're on the street and not paying attention, it's dangerous." This proposed cell-phone crosswalk ban would mean citizens could face a $30 fine if they get caught staring at their phone while walking around the city. The Honolulu law, which goes into effect in October, will see fines starting at $15 and going as high as $99 for multiple violations.
