Pedestrian injury increases coz of texting or calling while walking


Texting accident that includes falls, trips and collisions with obstacles or other individuals is rising, according to research. Thus, the researchers from University of Queensland in Australia conducted a study about texting while walking.

“Texting, and to a lesser extent reading, on your mobile phone affects your ability to walk and balance,” said lead author Siobhan Schabrun.

It shows that texting while walking impairs the ability to follow a straight line and keep a normal pace. And due to the rise of number of pedestrian accidents, some areas in the US have ban doing such activity while on the move.
