Honolulu bans ringtones on buses

Omar McFarlane

It sounds like riding the buses in Honolulu has just been silenced from those who like sharing their fave Billboard's Top 10 ringtone. Yesterday, Mayor Mufi Hannemann signed a ban disallowing cellphone rings, and requires the use of headphones on any noise making device. Oddly enough, the new law still allows people to have conversations on their phones, since this obviously does not distract bus drivers, who adamantly pushed for the ban. At the rate all these anti-cellphone laws are being made, our homes might become the only safe place to use them.
