Re: anti-distraction measure, pushed

BAGUIO CITY – The city council passed on first reading a proposed "anti-distracted pedestrian ordinance in the city of Baguio" aimed at regulating the use of mobile electronic devices by certain individuals in the Summer Capital.

Authored by councilor Leandro Yangot Jr., the measure states that the reduction or elimination of distracted pedestrian injuries is an important and achievable policy goal.

"The use of mobile phones is growing worldwide and studies suggest that pedestrians who are distracted by phone conversations or other distracting activities such as listening to music or texting take greater risks when crossing streets especially when there is traffic," it adds.

The proposed ordinance prohibits pedestrians from crossing a street or highway while viewing a mobile electronic device in a manner that averts his visual attention. It advises parents or guardians to keep their eyes on their children and discourage them from viewing said devices while crossing the street.

However, the measure exempts pedestrians using a mobile electronic device for the sole purpose of making an emergency call or text and emergency responders while in the performance or scope of their official duties.

Tasked to strictly implement the proposed measure's provisions are the police chief, barangay officials and other government agencies.

Any person caught violating the ordinance will be required to do community service for 15 days for the first offense; 30 day community service, second offense; and a fine of P5,000 or 30 day imprisonment or both at the court's discretion.-gaby keith
