Avid texters beware: Fort Lee, N.J. police said they will begin issuing $85 jaywalking tickets to pedestrians who are caught texting while walking.
Dont believe everything you read on the internet...
"Thomas Ripoli — chief of the Fort Lee Police Department — told msnbc.com, we should probably relax and remember that not everything we read on the Internet is always true.
Ripoli, who'd been fielding calls from all over the world, says that discussion of his town's pedestrian safety was somehow taken out of context and that "things got out of hand." Folks who are texting while walking in Fort Lee are indeed issued a $54 jaywalking ticket ... but only if they also happen to be jaywalking at the same time"
