Kobayashi introduces bill to outlaw cellphone use in crosswalk

By Associated Press

LAST UPDATED: 10:25 p.m. HST, May 10, 2011

City Councilwoman Ann Kobayashi wants to make illegal pedestrian use of a cellphone or electronic device while crossing streets.

KHON reported Monday that Kobayashi has sponsored the measure, which faces an initial vote at the Council today.

Police spokeswoman Michelle Yu says the department does not track whether electronic devices play a role in pedestrian fatalities. So far this year, five pedestrians have been killed on Oahu roadways, with three of those deaths in marked crosswalks.
