Avid texters beware: Fort Lee, N.J. police said they will begin issuing $85 jaywalking tickets to pedestrians who are caught texting while walking.
“It’s a big distraction. Pedestrians aren’t watching where they are going and they are not aware,” said Thomas Ripoli, chief of the Fort Lee Police Department.
[...]Officers handed out pamphlets during a short grace period in March before they began aggressively going after “dangerous walkers.”
More than 117 tickets have been issued, according to the New Jersey Record.
