Here’s a smartphone plan that would really cost you.

Crossing the street in New Jersey with your eyes glued to your smartphone could mean spending 15 days in jail, paying a $50 fine, or both, in a “distracted walking” bill introduced by state assemblywoman Pamela Lampitt.

“Distracted pedestrians, like distracted drivers, present a potential danger to themselves and drivers on the road,” Lampitt said. “An individual crossing the road distracted by their smartphone presents just as much danger to motorists as someone jaywalking and should be held, at minimum, to the same penalty.”

The proposed measure would ban walking while texting and prohibit pedestrians on public roads from using their smartphones unless they’re hands-free.
