Lei down that phone!
Crossing the street while texting in Honolulu is now illegal, thanks to a new law that went into effect Wednesday in Hawaii’s largest city.
Violators can be slapped with a fine of up to $35 for their first offense.
But those who continue to use their phone and cross the street will be fined up to $99.
The cellphone ban, which is intended to stop distracted people from strolling out into traffic, has made Honolulu the first US city to fine pedestrians for using their phones.
