Do not text while walking

Here in Ontario, and in many other jurisdictions, the laws are moving towards restrictions on using cell phones while driving. As I tell many of my BlackBerry enabled co-workers, it is also dangerous to text while walking.

Here is a prime example of what can happen if you are not watching while you walk. A teenage girl fell into a manhole while busy texting a friend. She was not badly hurt, but she lost a shoe and the putrid nature of her new surroundings make her sick.

There is an old saying. “Look both ways before crossing the street”. How about just plain old “Look while walking”.
