We all know that texting while driving is dangerous but so is texting while walking. Yes, according to Glamour magazine, researchers say injuries are on the rise because of texting while walking; because whatever is on your phone is a distraction to what is going on around you. Remember the video that went viral of the woman in the mall who was texting while walking and fell into the mall’s water display?
Researchers also say it is a lack of situational awareness, caused by whatever is happening on your phone that creates a dangerous scenario. If you are guilty of walking while texting, you might want to rethink that.
