Believe it or not, but walking and texting could soon be illegal in places like New Jersey, if laws up for vote get some love at the polls.
Violators would face fines of up to $50, 15 days imprisonment or both, which is the same penalty as jaywalking.
Lampitt said the measure is needed to dissuade and penalize “risky behavior.” She cited a National Safety Council report that shows distracted walking incidents involving cellphones accounted for an estimated 11,101 injuries from 2000 through 2011.
distracted walking incidents involving cellphones accounted for an estimated 11,101 injuries from 2000 through 2011.
The study found a majority of those injured were female and most were 40 or younger. Talking on the phone was the most prevalent activity at the time of injury, while texting accounted for 12%. Nearly 80% of the injuries occurred as the result of a fall, while 9% occurred from the pedestrian striking a motionless object. Mashable
As for the photos, they were snapped yesterday afternoon as Minka was spotted out grabbing lunch with a friend in West Hollywood.
Minka Kelly was working her seemingly boring style while out shopping in West Hollywood. The pair stopped to buy clothes at American Rag before heading home.
I have to admit, for somebody who’s famous for having short, stubby legs, it’s nice to see that Minka at least likes to spend time with friends who have nice pair of legs. Can you imagine what Minka would look like if she was wearing those short-shorts? Oh wait, there’s always photo shop…
Hey, if you know the cameras will be on you while you’re out & about, you might as well play the part & try a little harder in the style department.
Minka Kelly hid behind a pair of shades while wearing a patterned white top coupled with distressed jeans. The 35-year-old actress was spotted shopping at the Grove yesterday afternoon and pretended to talk on her phone the entire time the papz had their cameras pointed at her.
Apologies for the mini-hiatus we went on for the past few days, but we’re officially back in action. I meant to get these up yesterday, but ran into some issues.
The photos were snapped last Friday as Minka Kelly was seen out & about running errands in Los Angeles wearing a white dress. As we mentioned in a recent post, Minka scored a small role in the new Hulu series “The Path,” which stars Aaron Paul, Michelle Monaghan, and Hugh Dancy. You can read more about it here.

Believe it or not, but Minka Kelly actually scored a role in the new Hulu series! Good for her!
“The Path,” which is a new series exclusively on Hulu, will star Aaron Paul, Michelle Monaghan, and Hugh Dancy. According to IMDb, the series will focus centers on a “man who converts to a controversial following [and then] suffers from a crisis of faith.” Not exactly my cup of tea, but I’m sure it’ll find its niche audience.
I know we always poke fun at Minka Kelly, but let’s face it, she’s effortlessly sexy. The beautiful 35-year-old actress was seening enjoying lunch at Forage Eatery in Silverlake with friends yesterday afternoon.
According to Minka’s Wiki & IMDb pages, it’s looking like a fairly laid back year for Minka. She currently has no projects set for release or under production.
We should note that Minka Kelly is handicapped by inferior lighting during her parking lot catwalker. The fact that Minka’s not wearing workout gear in these photos actually helps her, but that’s just our opinion.
Both ladies were out & about in L.A. yesterday afternoon, with Minka doing some shopping in West Hollywood and Alessandra Ambrosio hitting up her daily workout in Santa Monica.
Now here’s somebody we haven’t seen in a while (last saw her on the site back in August)! Minka Kelly was recently spotted shopping around West Hollywood.
The 35-year-old actress is the star of the new film ‘Papa,’ which released late last month. Along with Minka, the film stars Giovanni Ribisi and Joely Richardson. According to Wikipedia, it’s apparently a “biographical film about Ernest Hemingway’s time in Havana, Cuba in the 1950s.” Furthermore, Rolling Stone adds, “Papa tells the story of journalist Denne Bart Petitclerc’s friendship with Hemingway, and is based on an autobiographical script by Petitclerc.”
