Link Between Pedestrian Accidents and Texting

walking and texting

A person who is texting while crossing the street is four times more likely to be hit by a car than someone who's not texting. Someone who is texting while crossing a street has a 25 percent chance of being hit by a car while someone who is not texting only has a 6 percent chance of being hit by a vehicle, according to scientific study conducted by the Youth Safety Laboratory at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
