Update: Officers warn distracted walkers
Walking and texting along the Danforth? Then police may be stopping you for a chat.
54 and 55 Division officers will be speaking to pedestrians about the use of cell phones or other electronic devices while walking. That's in the Danforth and Broadview area.
They'll be handing out pamphlets and sharing their own safety tips with pedestrians.
It hasn't happened here yet, but in some cities, people who walk and text, can be fined. In New Jersey, the fine is $85 and in Utah, it's $50 for careless walking.
