Texting zombies

I posted a photo on the Way2Go Cortland Facebook page back in July showing a line of kids texting while walking down the street. It was titled “You are already zombies.”

It was a funny pic except when you realize that walking like that is risky, especially to the individual who might step off a curb and into traffic.

A new study reported at abcnews.go.com shows that pedestrians who text are 4 times less likely to look before crossing the street. Combine that with a driver who is texting and it’s a deadly combination.
