One city in New Jersey is cracking down on texting while walking.
Officials in Fort Lee have begun issuing tickets of up to $85 for each offense.
The measure was implemented after a rise in pedestrian-related accidents.
Fort Lee Police Chief Thomas Ripoli told ABC News, "It's a big distraction. Pedestrians aren't watching where they are going and they are not aware."
More than 117 tickets have already been issued, the New Jersey Record reported.
