You may or may not have heard yesterday that this New York State Senator Carl Kruger has proposed $100 fines for people using electronic devices such as Blackberrys and iPods while crossing the street. This is in response to pedestrian deaths recently where the person hit by car was using some sort of electronic device while crossing the street. “Government has an obligation to protect its citizenry,” he says. He says this is turning into a major public safety crisis.

By the time this comic is up, this idea will probably already be shut down based off of sheer stupidity. If by some miracle this were to pass, the police would care as much as they care about people jaywalking.
