It’s tempting to pull out your phone and start texting while you walk. But just remember . . . everyone’s ALSO doing that while they drive. And since they’re not paying attention to you, you REALLY need to pay attention to them. Check this out…
–A new study has figured out the times of day when you’re most likely to get RUN OVER. It found that THE most dangerous time is 8:38 A.M. . . . and the second-most dangerous is 6:22 P.M.
–Both of those are right in the middle of popular commuting times . . . and the researchers say that’s not a coincidence. They believe that’s when both people in their cars AND pedestrians walking home are bored and messing with their phones.
–They observed people on the street and found that 22% of pedestrians were using their phones at 8:38 A.M. and 9% were using them at 6:22 P.M.
–37% of pedestrians also admitted they’ve made a call crossing the road . . . 30% have sent a text . . . 10% have been playing a game . . . and 5% have been posting to Facebook or Twitter.
