Texting, walking more risky than distracted driving

WTOP- Texting while walking accounts for more injuries per mile than distracted driving, according to a professor of emergency medicine who says he's treating a skyrocketing number of pedestrian injury cases.

The story is too old to be commented.

Only surprise is, that it needed a professor to tell this basic fact.

People are so dumb, lol. I hate constantly texting like that. If I'm walking, I'd much rather talk then text.

I'm genuinely surprised by this research b/c I normally get a hint of my surroundings by quickly looking up when texting + walking.
