With its arrival, we are always distracted while driving and walking on the highway. In fact, in some countries, they have put up banners warning people about the dangers of text-walking.

The following points should help you next time you out text walking.

1.Do not send or respond immediately

We are all addicted to our smartphones. Hence, we love to chat with girlfriends, family, and friends on BBM, WhatsApp, Messenger and Instagram, whether we are walking or not. No matter how important the message(s) is, you should not reply or respond immediately. Get to wherever you are going and settle down to reply.

2.Simply let your phone be

The best way to be safe while walking or driving is to let your phone be. Only use it when you are not doing any of the aforementioned.

3.Stand at a point and do whatever you want to do with your phone

If you have to respond to a message, step aside or stand at a point and reply the message. This is better if you do not want to fall into a ditch or hit a fellow pedestrian. It is safe and reasonable.

4.Download type and walk application

For every problem, there is a technology solution. There are now apps that will enable you to type when you are walking. How? You can easily type messages, read and send images and messages while walking to your destination without messing up with traffic on road or street. You can download ‘Type While Walk’ or ‘Type N Walk’, which are available on either the Google Play Store or Apple Store.

  1. Hmm it appears like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely
    long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying
    your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything.
    Do you have any tips for inexperienced blog writers?

    I’d really appreciate it.
