ok so i just got back from walking my dog. when im like 1 block away from my house i get stopped by the neighborhood police saying that i cant walk with my headphones on. though the police here are cool and all, its just our local mayor has set up all these BS rules. the main 1 that everyone is hating is when riding anything with wheels and no seat belt you have to wear a helmet and a vest. this i can understand, but no headphones while walking, ON THE SIDEWALK MIGHT I JUST ADD!!!, is totally stupid. what will i not notice someone calling out to me? or will i get hit by a car? oh yea thats right cars are not allowed on the sidewalk!!! the only way for that to happen is if someone was blind, drunk, or so high that all they saw is a pink surface. it just doesnt make any sense. your opinions?

But they are allowed on streets, which you tend to cross when you want to go anywhere.

Typically such laws are reserved for cases where you present a great danger to others while being distracted from things such as sirens and honking horns. In other words while driving, riding a bike, motorcycle, etc. In those cases I fully agree with the law, esp when idiots yak on cell phones and practically run you over while you're in a crosswalk. Banning headphone wearing while walking is utterly ridiculous though and I could not find such a thing via Google. Thus I too would like to know where you live along with any links to info in your area where such things are actually being enforced. Otherwise, I gotta say this sounds a bit like a late April fool's joke. Was this on a school campus by any chance?

Ah ha, well that explains it, esp if they're talking about a person on active duty. I wouldn't get your panties in a bunch about it maggot. Oops, sorry, I was compelled to spout the typical drill Sgt. spiel there. "Now drop and give me 20!" ....."GUMP, are you slow or just ignorant, I said drop and give me 20!" :lol: Seriously though, one word of advice. DO NOT flip the MPs sh!t about this little rule. You don't want to fight with them boys.
