  • Yes, I do.

    For the simple fact I've seen people bump into eachother because they aren't paying attention to their surroundings

    The more extreme cases would be those who walk into ongoing traffic with their earphones in walk talking on the phone.

    You name it... it has happened

    The reasons why rules are put in place is because there is a high percentage of people who have had these tragic events happen to them due to not paying attention to their surroundings.

    Rules are put into effect to caution people

    Of course people know better , but some need to be reminded. Even then some people still proceed to do it anyway.

  • Yes, I do. From personal experience. I lived in the country and was walking home from work late at night. I was texting a friend, and due to the darkness around me and the light of my phone, my eyes fixated on it and I couldn't see anything outside of my direct field of vision. Suddenly, the light changed and I looked up, realizing I had wandered into the middle of the road and a truck was speeding towards me. I got out of the way and never texted without continuously raising my head again.

  • Yes I do think it's dangerous because you might bump into someone while you're looking down at the phone. You might get ran over by a car because you're too busy looking at your phone. You might trip and fall. A lot of dangerous things can happen while you're texting on your phone and walking. I do this a lot but I'm trying to stop :/

  • Yes.

    They bump into people;
    They can bump into a hole;
    They can fall into a hole;
    They can walk against traffic.

    There's a price for not paying attention.

  • I can't even walk normally without finding walls and trees. No need to add a complication in.

  • I hit a pole once while reading (not texting), hit a tree too and a wall and another time I fell becoz I didn't notice a stone while walking and reading Jane Eyre. Yes its dangerous and my torn pant and bruised hand and leg are evidence enough. Avoid texting while walking.

  • Yes, it is dangerous, but it is a calculated risk. I do it all the time even though I know it is dangerous. I may end up running into a street sign pole (as I've seen happen to others before) but I'm willing to take that chance.

  • Humans can't do two things at once. It's been proven psychologically. You could walk into a wall, walk into traffic or a telephone poll. Like that sign says "Your Facebook status update can wait".

  • Yes. It can always happen that you can get hit by a car or a person on a bike
    or you trip and hit your head, many possible ways to injure yourself when you don't watch out
