Texting while Walking PSA created by Atlanta filmmakers spoofs Texting while Driving.

A little over a moth ago I posted a graphic public service announcement that was created in England on the dangers of Texting while Driving. Today I present the spoof (attempting to be even more graphic) which was created here in Atlanta and is called Texting while Walking. If you haven't seen the original, I recommend you see that prior to watching the spoof.

Please don't think that I am taking the topic lightly, I'm not; I just saw this as another opportunity to raise the issue. If you need further information on the topic, I encourage you to read the distracted driver information compiled by U.S. DOT Secretary Ray LaHood.

Finally if the DOT information doesn't make you change your habits, maybe this actual story of a texting while walking mishap will. Don't let it happen to you.
