This isn't the first time Senator Karl Kruger's proposed a ban on cellphone-use and listening to MP3 players when crossing the street. The motion didn't get passed in 2007, so let's hope the same happens again. [CBS via Gawker]

I hope this passes, for the sake of the kid dam you it’s for the kids…

I didn’t realize that NY was so perfect in every way that there were no other concerns than protecting people from crossing the street

So this NY Senator is saying that New Yorkers are so stupid that they can’t even cross the street. I have never been to NY but I just didn’t know they were that dumb, they should have that in a travel brochure.
