Everyone should know by now that texting while driving can lead to death and destruction, but few people realize the risks of texting while walking.

There are a thousand humiliating things that could happen to those who choose to text and walk, for example you can fall into a fountain;

or you could trot off the edge of a pier;

or into an open manhole.

The city of Philadelphia once considered fining pedestrians who were texting while walking, but we’re interested in hearing what you think.
