New Jersey is considering a bill right now that would make it illegal to WALK and TEXT.
If it becomes a law, you could get a $50 fine or 15 days in JAIL for using your phone while you walk. There are some cities in the U.S. that have these kinds of laws already, but no entire states.
For what it’s worth, the number of people who’ve gotten into “distracted walking” accidents is up 35% since 2010
