several states have now outlawed using ham radio while walking. this
is part of their ban on ALL electronic devices while walking as a
result of the lady who fell into a fountain while walking in a mall.
however, instead of outlawing only texting while walking, the new laws
state using ANY electronic device while walking is against the law and
violators will get fined over two hundred dollars for doing such. And
unlike the driving laws, there are NO exceptions for ham radio or cbl
radio in these states laws against using ANY and ALL electronic
devices while walking.

Apparently, several states have proposed the banning of certain devices
while crossing a street. But most of those are just proposals. The first
one, in arkansas, was dropped because the guy said there wasn't enough
backing.

That's right. Walking and listening at the same time is forbidden.... As a
matter of fact, listening in general might as well be forbidden. It has
become a lost art.....
