Here are some clips of a video that went viral on YouTube about a woman walking into a fountain while texting – which further illustrates the above

Texting While Walking Lands Woman in Lake Michigan
By Ben Johnson and Slate V Staff

“…A woman’s texting habit had her strolling off a pier into a river channel that turns into Lake Michigan this week, and emergency personnel were called to fish her and her rescuing husband out of the water…All long-walk-off-a-short-pier jokes aside, Miller says she hopes people will take this as a lesson. “I’m so grateful to be alive,” she said. “I have a new lease on life.” She’ll need a new phone now, too. ”

In other developments, GAWKER MEDIA  reported that  “Texting While Walking Is Now a Crime in Philadelphia”
In today’s little bit of authoritarianism we can get behind: Philadelphia is going to start handing out citations—and $120 fines—to pedestrians who “text while they walk without looking ahead.”
But that story, originally reported by CBS and picked up by newsmedia and bloggers worldwide was, unfortunately, incorrect.
Deputy Mayor Rina Cutler “said that is not true. Furthermore, she questioned how such a law could even be enforced. “
