Introduction

Everyone knows walking while texting is dangerous. But how dangerous? 
And is there more to it than the safety side?

About the course

The thing about teaching people stuff they already know is they switch straight off. Everyone knows bacon double cheeseburgers will make them fat. You can remind people all day long. No guarantees they’ll stop wolfing them down. The point of this course isn’t to reinvent you as a person. It’s to make you think about the decisions you’re making by having your phone out while walking. To make you think about the possible consequences. And hopefully, as a result, take what you already know, and use it to change how you act. Even if it’s as simple as keeping your phone in your pocket while you’re walking. Doesn’t seem too much to ask, does it? And, perhaps most importantly, this course will do all that in a way that doesn’t bore you to death.
