Texting while walking: a viral video and some good lessons from NYT

“Texting While Walking” by Casey Neistat is a humorous cautionary video about the dangers of composing text messages while walking. 

Casey Neistat is a New York-based filmmaker and the video is a New York Times opinion-documentary.

While there’s little current data about the number of people injured while texting, more than 1,000 pedestrians visited emergency rooms in 2008 after they were injured while using a cellphone to talk or text. That had doubled each year since 2006, according to a study conducted by Ohio State University.
