Pedestrians in Honolulu will soon have to start putting their phones away as the state has signed a ban into law that will make texting while walking illegal.
The ban, which will begin to take effect in October, says anyone crossing “a street or highway while viewing a mobile electronic device” will pay a fine that could rise as high as $99.
Fines for first offenders are placed between $15 to $35, $35 to $75 for a second in the span of a year, and $75 to $99 for a third time, according to The Verge.
While residents have kicked against the law, officials believe it is necessary so people don’t become “statistics.”
The city’s mayor Kirk Cardwell said: “Sometimes I wish there were laws that we did not have to pass, that perhaps common sense would prevail. But sometimes we lack common sense.”
