More Accidents From Texting And Walking Than Texting And Driving

From MedlinePlus, "Texting While Walking Often Leads to Injuries: Expert: Distraction causes people to fall down stairs, step into traffic, trauma doctor says" by Robert Preidt:
Texting while walking causes more -- although usually less serious -- injuries than texting while driving, according to an expert.

"When texting, you're not as in control with the complex actions of walking," Dr. Dietrich Jehle, a professor of emergency medicine at the University at Buffalo, said in a university news release. "While talking on the phone is a distraction, texting is much more dangerous because you can't see the path in front of you."
