Texting while walking is no laughing matter

PHILADELPHIA--It started as an April Fools joke but has become a way to warn people about the dangers of texting and walking.

Philadelphia created an electronics devices lane for walkers.

The lane allowed them to try and text and walk, while staying in their own lane.

It has become very entertaining for bystanders.

The city said the lane will go away at the end of the week, but it highlights what can be a serious problem.

You may recall a few weeks ago when someone was texting and walking here in Michiana and she fell into The St. Joseph River.
