“cellphone zombies” could be fined

Local News

A new proposal working its way through the New York state is taking aim at people who walk and text. 

Under the plan, so-called “cellphone zombies” could be fined for distracted walking. 

According to a Governors Highway Safety Association Report, nearly 6,000 pedestrians were hit and killed by motor vehicles in 2017. It’s unclear how many of those deaths were a result of distracted walking.
