Careful Using Your Smartphone…Walking!
Ohio State University researchers recently reported that in 2010, more than 1,500 people were treated in ERs for injuries caused by trying to use a cellphone and walk at the same time; the researchers also said that number had doubled since 2005. That PLOS study, published earlier this year, also showed that 35 percent of their participants said that they’d had some sort of accident while walking and texting.
….and avoid distracted driving (e.g. talking – even handsfree & passengers, eating, operating audio, looking around, texting, emailing)!
