Texting on a phone while driving is extremely dangerous, walking while texting or using smart phones is not safe either.
The Associated Press (linked to here via the Christian Science Monitor) reports that the practice is resulting in injuries and accidents to pedestrians.
AP also posted on its YouTube channel a surveillance of a man who fell from a train platform onto the tracks below because he was distracted by his phone. Last year, a video of a woman falling into a fountain at a mall while distracted by phone went viral.
