Philly to fine pedestrians for texting while walking

Cnet.com is reporting on Philadelphia’s program known as “Give Respect, Get Respect” which is geared to crack down on all sorts of “bad behavior” on and off the road, from pedestrians who talk and text while they cross the road to bicyclists who ride on the sidewalk. The program, launched in May  has mostly doled out warnings to roadside offenders, but is set to kick into high gear in August by issuing more tickets to those who violate the rules. Pedestrians, bikers, and motorists caught under the expanded enforcement will be fined $120.
