I have previously commented on the dangers of dog walkers with iPods. Well – I am not alone. Someone is doing something about it. Unfortunately that someone is in the US. As noted here, New York plans to:
make it illegal for walkers and joggers to use any kind of electronic device while crossing the street.
Good start New York but don’t forget the bike paths where walkers unduly under iPod influence randomly walk in front of on-coming bicycles. I note that:
Oregon and Virginia … would fine bicyclists as much as $90 for riding under the influence of technology.
How about the same fines here for bike-path walkers?
Come on Julia. Forget the NBN and carbon taxes. Here is a real issue to get the electorate back on your side.
