How a text can put you on the road to injury: Study finds that using your mobile phone while walking could be deadly


Texting while crossing the road was the riskiest activity, making people four times more likely to ignore oncoming traffic and disobey the lights, according to a new study.

Texters also took longer to cross the street at busy junctions.

Almost one in three pedestrians were using phones or doing something else distracting at the same time as they were trying to cross the road.
