A $500 fine for texting and walking??

We all do this, and if you don’t…you are lying, but you might not want to do it anymore in Chicago! WLS-TV, says that a pair of aldermen are trying to make a new fine in the windy city, with fines going from 90 to 500 dollars!

Proposed by Aldermen Ed Burke and Anthony Beale after officials had passed a similar proposal in Honolulu to help prevent injuries and deaths to pedestrians.

Governors Highway Safety Association stated that in 2016, pedestrian deaths jumped 9 percent from the year before.
