Look both ways and turn your iPod off

According to this story, a New York State Senator is proposing a bill which would require iPod users to take off their earphones before crossing the street. If one does not do so one could get hit with a $100 fine.
The bill also applies to cell phones, blackberries, PSP’s, and assorted electronic devices. The senator makes his case by pointing out 2 cases in which iPod users were killed as they walked onto the street. Is this government trying to overreach itself or good old fashioned prevention?
