After a long and bloody year for pedestrians and cyclists, in which 20 people were hit in just 24 hours this month, City Council has come up with a solution: ban texting and walking.
Frances Nunziata put a motion before Council yesterday that asks the province to fine people for using their phones while behind the toes.
“If you’re texting and driving and texting and walking across an intersection, it’s, in my opinion, the same” she told the Star.
Except, obviously, it’s not. When you crash your sneakers, nobody dies.
Nunziata’s motion passed 26–15 with the support of the mayor.
