Padded Lampposts Tested in London to Prevent Cell Phone Texting Injuries

When texting first hit the scene, it was a convenient, quick way to convey a message without killing costly cell phone minutes. But convenience gave way to annoyance with the rise of text message break-ups, textual harassment, and — OMG! — texting while driving. One would think that texting while walking would be the better way to move and message at once, but not so fast. Those damn lampposts keep getting in the way! Last year, 68,000 distracted peeps were injured from walking into stationary objects in the streets of London— so they're now gonna add padding to lampposts. Can you hear me now? Cuz I'm ROTFL!

Maybe they should just tell people to look where they're going like my mother did and they would never do it again after hearing her voice a couple times. Maybe I should ask my mother to help with the crisis.

Might I suggest that V-8 get into the padded post advertising action! ;)
PollyPrissyPants PollyPrissyPants 8 years know you need to put the cell phone down when... Love the fact that they are planning to advertise ON the padding. So when you're lying on the ground wondering what the hell just can see that Tesco is having a 99 cent special on tuna! It's a win win.
