Honolulu will ban people from walking across the road while using mobile phones. A new law says no one can cross a street while looking at mobile devices. There will be fines from $15-$99. Honolulu's mayor said the law was because of many accidents that happen when people walk and use mobile phones.

People who text and walk are called "phone zombies". The ban is to teach people about the dangers of texting and walking. There are too many accidents. He added that if people had more common sense, there would be no need for this law. We have a lot of technology today but we forget about safety.
