Authorities in Rexburg, Idaho are handing out $50 (31) fines for people walking and texting at the same time. The new law started a couple of months ago, and some students were supportive of the idea, reports The Guardian. One student stated: I think its a good rule so we dont get hit by cars. Meanwhile, Pennsylvania has started fining distracted drivers, cyclists and pedestrians as part of a new 'Give Respect, Get Respect campaign, though the mayor was forced to deny rumours that $120 (74) fines will be given to those walking and texting. In January, a woman in Pennsylvania walked into a water fountain at a shopping mall while she was texting. Footage caught by security cameras was uploaded onto the internet, where it has since been watched by millions of people around the world. DS
