SMSing while you walk may land you in the dwang

Be careful where you click is sound advice for people who surf the web.

Be careful where you step is likewise good advice for people who are writing an SMS while walking in the street.  A teenager in New York was so engrossed in sending a text message that she did not see an open manhole – and fell into it.

Yes 9 out 10 drivers behind steering wheels are doing it (including me) – we need to think about “voice activated sms” thus talking your sms while driving and sending without “handling” the cell phone.

Is their an entrepreneur who can design the software ?

Guilty, guilty, guilty! Mark is definitely guilty of this offence. His wife says he has ADHD He must fiddle with something such as the radio, mobile phone, etc while driving. He calls it multi-tasking and must stop. It takes at least three weeks to break this dirty habit.

Read recently that 10% of accidents are caused by drivers driving under the influence of alcohol. So, 90% is caused by sober drivers. How many of them caused an accident as a result of fiddling with a gadget?
