Do you text and walk? I bet you do. I know I do and I've nearly stepped into cars backing out of parking spots because I was too busy responding to a text message. 

If you go to Youtube and type texting walking into the search, you will find a lot of videos of people getting seriously hurt because they were too busy texting and not paying attention. There's a compilation of some huge texting and walking fails below.

And a New Jersey woman has become viral news after her texting and walking fall into an open sidewalk grate went viral.
