The topic of whether the use of mobile devices while crossing the road should be regulated has been discussed many times.
Some suggest that turning it into a law is too austere. Others say a ban is necessary to ensure the safety of everyone.
Pedestrians play a significant role in road safety. Thus, imposing a fine on errant pedestrians is reasonable.
Most accidents happen due to carelessness, or people behaving badly or selfishly. Any small form of regulation will improve road safety.
