The Chicago City Council members banned texting while biking today. While this seems like common sense, it appears bikers need to be warned of the dangers through enforcement. Sources say the law will take affect next month, so bikers beware!
If caught in violation of the new law, they will be ticketed and fined for the offense. Watch out for “No texting while walking”…that has to be next since we are in “Big Brother” mode. After that we can count on the law enforcing; “No eating while texting” and “No swimming while texting”.
I’m still trying to figure out how anyone can text and ride a bike anyhow, I can barely keep my balance with two hands on the wheel!
