Walking While Distracted?

I simply couldn't pass this up. According to this story, 1 in 10 pedestrians in London have been injured while - get this - texting. Evidently, people can't text and walk without getting hurt. So, the city of London has decided to do their part to prevent these accidents - by installing padding around the base of the street lights!

Crazy. I just wonder how those conversations go at the hospital. "I was just walking, minding my own business, and that street light just jumped right in front of me. Good thing I was texting my BFF , who was walking 3 feet behind me, or who knows how long I would have been laying on the sidewalk".
