Someone has found the answer to texting and walking issue!!!
OK actually it's from the very cool group of pranksters called Improv Everywhere (I've posted a few brilliant things from them before.) They went on the streets of New York City pretending to be Seeing-Eye People in orange vests. They pretend to "walk" those who are texting and look out for any potential hazards. The people they were walking were obviously in on the prank, but the reaction from the people around them is hilarious.
Then they took it a step further and started offering unsuspecting people the same service. Even more hilarity.
