Texting and walking could be a dangerous combination, and it could cost you money.

USA Today reports that some communities are trying to stop pedestrian accidents that are caused because people are walking while looking at their phones.

In Fort Lee, New Jersey, police give $85 fines for careless walking. In Utah, someone can get fined $50 for distracted walking near a train.
