New York lawmakers are looking into a new policy, one that would ban simultaneously texting and talking.
In New York, crossing the street while you’re texting could become illegal. There’s a bill in the New York state senate right now that would ban people from using portable electronics while crossing a road.
Those found guilty of doing it could face a fine of up to $50. Emergencies would be the only exception.
