Will this Bill Thwart the iZombie Apocalypse?
How do we stop the iZombie apocalypse? Not with a double tap. Not by meeting up at the Winchester to sort it out with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. No, the only way to rid the city of the oblivious, slumped head, slow walker is through politics. Naturally.
A new bill recently introduced by the State Senate would make it illegal for people to cross streets in New York with their eyes glued to their smartphone, or else be fined anywhere from $50 to $150, based on offenses.
“This is a bill that says don’t text while crossing the street, wait the 10 seconds, to get to the other side,” Queens Senator John Liu said after the bill’s introduction last month.
