Be Warned!

Very shortly, Pedestrians caught crossing the streets and looking at their phones will be fined $200 once a proposal is endorsed.

The Pedestrian Council of Australia, who is really agitating for the implementation of the fine, explained that it would stop many individuals crossing the road from some many open dangers and risk.

Currently causing segregation in Australia, with some arguing the fine is actually a good one while others argued it’s taken too far, the PDA’s, Harold Scruby said: “We would really want to witness a penalty of $200 nationally, and it would be titled “crossroad while distracted.”

Agreeing with the hefty fine, a road safety expert stated that looking down at a phone while walking or crossing is a kind of inattentive blindness.

While there are, however, existing laws centering on failing to obey traffic lights, crossing within 20 meters of a pedestrian crossing at an $81 fine each, one citizen who disagreed said: ‘I think that’s ridiculous. “I think that’s ridiculous. If there is going to be a pedestrian crossing you should be allowed to cross.”

Another, which is a woman agreed and said: ‘Drivers and pedestrians have an equal responsibility to be safe, so if they’re distracted they should probably be fined equally.”

Nevertheless, Australian Police indicated that are not presently approving any penalties for pedestrians caught using their smartphones.
