Honolulu Mayor Mayor signs law banning cell phones on buses
Bus riders in Honolulu will have to turn off their cell phones following Mayor Mufi Hannemann's signing of the ban into law on December 27th. The Star Bulletin reports.
"The ban still allows cell phone conversations on the buses.
City bus drivers pushed for the ban because they said cell phone rings distract them and sometimes sound like emergency sirens and walkie-talkie conversations.
The policy also requires riders to use headphones or earphones when using televisions, radios, recording devices, portable stereos and electronic games."
