Study highlights dangers of texting while walking

4 years ago63 views



A new Japanese public service announcement is warning of the dangers that come with texting and walking at the same time.

The video, created by mobile carrier NTT Docomo, warns that 1 out of every 5 people who text and walk, injure themselves or end up in an accident. The animation tries to show what would happen if 15-hundred people were all attempting to text and walk at the same time through a major intersection in Tokyo. A different study showed that only around one third of the 15-hundred who are texting would walk across the street safe. It says there would be nearly 450 collisions with over a hundred people who trip and fall, and twenty-one others who drop their phones.
