Texting and Walking Can Be Dangerous

Comments Off

I came upon a sign recently:

That got me thinking about a recent trip to the supermarket. I was pulling into the parking lot and ahead of me was a woman who was walking like she was drunk right down the middle of the lane. She was busy texting away on her phone. I saw her so she was safe from me. But, at least three backing cars almost got her, including the one that she almost walked right into.

There are a lot of things written here at the Injuryboard about driving and texting.

But, if you are walking near moving cars or dangerous vehicles, you are much better off to keep your head up and out of the cell as well.
