This is just some BS ploy to generate revenue for the city. What's next, having people signal a lane change when they move from one side of the sidewalk to the other.

The near misses go on constantly and some folks have the gall to think it is my fault for not watching out for them!! Egads.

It's not only in LA, pedestrians not paying attention even when they are not texting. Its all over the country. Just take a ride across from east coast to west coast going through big name cities and it will prove your point. Cella.

Many bicyclists text and talk while riding and they never pay attention. I don't know why texting is so popular. It takes way too long and it's so much easier to just talk and get the conversation over with and accomplish the communication, however, talking does actually take more brain power and intelligence to think ahead about what you want to say and communicate.
