    I'm not sure about texting, as much as I see people cross the street without even looking, and they aren't on a phone!

    Honestly, if you just assume you have the right away, and that the cross walk provides a force field from cars, yeah YOU DESERVE to be hit. Well, I mean I don't feel sorry for you. Some people just walk in front of you, and can't possibly expect you to stop in time.

    Bottom line, people are stupid.. lol

    Freakanomics (or maybe it was superfreakanomics) had a chapter on how walking is more dangerous that driving drunk. Something along those lines. I just moved and my books are stilll packed up.

    It's funny how everything is compared to driving drunk. No matter what it is.

    ** A recent study shows:

    "Making pancakes while watching TV is more dangerous than driving drunk" :rofl2:
