City Bans Texting While Walking -Say “What!?”

Derek, 99.9 the Point

If you ever find yourself in Fort Lee, New Jersey, make sure you stop walking to answer a text.  If you get caught texting while walking you could find yourself dinged with an $85 dollar ticket! The city is cracking down hoping to do away with distracted walkers. If that’s the case what about people who are walking and talking with their friends? Or people walking their dogs? Most people walking are distracted in one way or another. Yes, texting and walking is annoying but most of us are guilty of it. I think that this is a very stupid law, but the city is very serious about already giving out more than 117 tickets since the law passed.

Do you agree with this law? Do you think we should have one passed here?
