Lawmakers take aim at iPod oblivion

A New York State senator hopes to introduce legislation that will make using an iPod on crosswalks illegal, according to news reports.

WCBS-TV in New York has the story. State Sen. Carl Kruger says too many pedestrians are in “iPod oblivion” when crossing streets. In an effort to curb the distraction, Kruger suggests iPod addicts who refuse to unplug when crossing busy metropolitan streets should be fined US$100.

According to the article, the bill would only apply to big cities in the state.
