David Slepkow's curator insight, January 6, 2015 1:49 AM

These distractions, he says, have led to an increase in cell phone related injures. And while car accidents involving texting are typically more severe, injures as a result of texting while walking occur more frequently.

 A separate but related study by researchers at Stony Brook University supports these findings by claiming that pedestrians using their cell phone while walking are 61% more likely to veer off course.

Certainly, the proliferation of smart phones, social media, and mobile apps has led to an increase in this risky behavior. Our cell phones have essentially become glued to our hands, especially amongst adults under 30 years old, who are most at risk for cell phone related injuries.


But Dr. Jehle suggests the use of mobile apps that allow you to text via voice command, or the use of cell phone cameras to display what’s in front of pedestrians as they text – an idea that actually isn’t too far from becoming a reality!


In London, bumpers have been placed around light posts to prevent pedestrians from slamming into them. And in some states, legislation has been drafted to discourage texting while walking. So what can be done to minimize this danger?


Most recently, Apple filed a patent for new technology that would minimize the danger of texting while walking. The proposed technology would replace the background of your screen with a live video feed of whatever is in front of you; your text messages would appear as an overlay of your camera’s feed, allowing you to see what’s ahead of you while texting at the same time–thus, reducing the risk of running into things.

Steven M. Sweat's curator insight, March 25, 2014 12:25 PM

Municipalities across California have begun stepping up law enforcement efforts on pedestrian traffic laws.  This comes on the heels of a spike across the Golden State in pedestrian injuries and fatalities.  This video is a prime example of people failing to abide by the California Vehicle Code sections which require motor vehicle operators to yield the right of way to pedestrians in crosswalks and require pedestrians to not enter roadways unless and until it it safe to do so.

Distracted Driving & Teens [Infographic]

 

By: Andrew Orlander - Ellis Law

David Slepkow's curator insight, January 6, 2015 2:06 AM

The prevalence of smart phones among teens, and their apparent ignorance of texting hazards, only exacerbates the issue. In fact, one in every five teens believes that texting has no impact on their driving abilities. But the reality is that while teens only account for 6 percent of our drivers, they are responsible for 10 percent of all car accident fatalities.


When you consider that two-thirds of teens own cell phones and the majority feel pressured to send email responses regardless if they’re on the road – it makes distracted driving one of the nation’s biggest problems. The bottom line for thousands of innocent victims is that distractions cause death, and texting while driving increases the odds of an accident by 23 times.

Texting, web surfing and other distracted driving

Some 16 percent of all distracted driving crashes involve teen drivers. But texting isn’t the only cause of these accidents. Last year, a whopping 24 percent of teens said they check their Facebook accounts, post tweets and surf the web while driving. Our most serious offenders in distracted driving crashes are our youngest drivers – teens who are more apt to reach for their cell phone while barreling down L.A’s congested highways and residential streets.
