Fort Lee, New Jersey, bans texting-while-walking; slams $85 fine on offenders

Mobile phones have proved to be hazardous before, with text-message-obsessed folks been known to be run down by cars, motorcycles, trains and falling into drains and pits. To keep its population from such terribly disturbing fates, the authorities at Fort Lee, New Jersey, have decided to fine pedestrians who text while walking around. This also decreases the number of texting-folk who bump into normal beings like us regularly. Those texting and walking in the area will be fined $85, a hefty sum not many would happily part with just for a text message.
