The Dangers of Texting While Walking

Texting while walking: more dangerous than you think, folks. From The New York Times:

While there’s little current data about the number of people injured while texting, more than 1,000 pedestrians visited emergency rooms in 2008 after they were injured while using a cellphone to talk or text. That had doubled each year since 2006, according to a study conducted by Ohio State University.

Casey Neistat is a New York-based filmmaker who’s made a film to accompany the above text. See the film here.
