Text Walker Banned in Toronto

Could an automated age be disrupting the brain’s capacity for making coherent decisions,  Well, text walkers are now banned in Toronto.

At city council late Thursday,  Nunziata requested Queen’s Park consider making changes to the Highway Traffic Act to prohibit “actively using a handheld wireless communication device or handheld electronic entertainment device while on any traveled portion of a roadway.”

Her motion was passed by a vote of 26 to 15, with the support of Mayor John Tory.

The new bylaw is directed toward text walkers.  Legislators in Toronto apparently and from what I’ve also witnessed in Calgary believe you’ve become disabled mentally because of a propensity to respond to the bell similarly to Pavlov’s research subjects.  You’ve seen it all before.  Folks are so obsessed that it doesn’t matter what the present circumstance of existence – the phone comes first.

Could this become a slippery slope in regulating you because you can’t regulate yourself.  It’s fascinating and amusing all combined together in your nanny state declaring you need it!
