The number of pedistricians or other factors should not be any excuses in practising of traffic regulations.  Rules are rules, it won't disappear just because of too many people or because of people feel difficult to abide then there should be no rules or laws I think.

Banning it while crossing a street yes, but not generally while walking as the title incorrectly says.

What the function of cameras or other electronic devices e.g. facial detection devices to be used in facilitating the management of traffic control?  There should be relevant violation fines in place in controlling of all kinds of breaches of traffic laws.  Life counts if raod users are reckless.

Do you think pedestrians cannot be expected to obey a law? Do laws have to be enforced with one official behind every citizen?

If a country has to enforce laws through the presence of big numbers of law enforcers it has a big problem on its hands: its people are not loyal to the State They are unpatriotic. They are antisocial. That is the basic condition needed for anarchy to breed.

Yes, banning it for people WALKING too; those who cannot divorce their minds from their iphones that clearly are smarter than their owners should be obligated to step into a special area created just for this purpose, like a bus bay. Let's see if the cities have enough money to redesign their public walking spaces in such a way. Or maybe there should be walking lanes, one for the brisk walkers, one for the slow ones and those whose eyes stay glued to electronic devices... But remember: we will need at least two lanes in both directions.

Well, there is the loophole since using a GPS while crossing the street might pose a threat to one ...

Using of GPS while crossing street poses threats to others's life, then using one's mobile or texting impose no threat to one's own life or causing further damage to other road users?  That's bit of preferred logic applied.

Thought law is useful for this problem,it must be more acceptable way. Like We can cut the green light time to annoy pedestrians then they will intently cross the street .
