Pedestrians walk past a “Look!” sign on the crosswalk at the intersection of 42nd Street and Second Avenue in New York. Cities all over the country are looking for ways to get pedestrians to pay more attention. Forty-seven states ban texting for drivers already, according to the Governors Highway Safety Association, and 15 states also ban phone calls with hand-held phones by motorists. Seth Wenig/AP
Well, Tulsa, Oklahoma is not New York City, but Pedestrians being distracted by texting and other tech device activities is not only affecting public safety in big cities, but in suburban neighborhoods and rural towns as well. For over 5 months at the intersection of 41st & Harvard, Becco Construction Constractor’s workers and independent contractors have been busy upgrading a road surfacing project that was financed by a 2008 penny sales tax bond. This project is on schedule and expected to complete in another two weeks according to Becco Construction Contractor’s Company.
