How many time in a day do you walk in a busy street with your head down, fingers frantically running all over your phones keyboard leaving you bumping into people? That’s not gonna be the picture anymore if you are a pedestrian in Philadelphia. Philadelphia’s city police department plans to begin cracking down on distracted walking, joining a growing campaign in other parts of the country. Obviously it’s no crime to text and walk hence if a police officer sees anyone, on foot or wheel, moving dangerously, he will first remind the person to be more careful. This is their way to curb the dangers that arise due to distractions caused by mobile devices.
So if you’re expecting a message from a loved one or can’t wait to read it till you get home its best to slow down or quit walking in order to take care of the messages.
