New York filmmaker releases texting and walking PSA
We’ve all done it. We’re walking to our destination and suddenly get that overpowering urge to send a text, send a tweet, or update a Facebook status. That is when you enter the dangerous world of texting and walking.

New York-based filmmaker Casey Neistat has noticed the dangers of texting while walking for years and had wanted to make a movie about it. His goal was to establish some texting etiquette guidelines to help people stay connected to their mobile world while respecting the physical one they are in.

Check out the humorous video below to see his take on dangers of texting and walking as well as his proposed solution.

I dont agree its kinda like the Jay leno freedom of speech if people should be allowed their freedom to text....mind you at their own risk. ammendment could be to make it illegal to text in traffic cross ways while opperating heavy equpment while driving should all be outlawed....yes!!! but other than maybe a few others.....all bets to freedom to text anywhere should be allowed.!!!!!!!
