Staying Army Safe can be complicated. There are a lot of factors to remember. This week, the Army Combat Readiness / Safety Center reminded soldiers that distracted walking accidents are real, and they’re happening more and more.
“Many pedestrians who suffer minor injuries due to texting, talking or video streaming while walking may be embarrassed and not report the whole story to their safety office or leader,” said Dr. Joe McFadden, research psychologist, Human Factors Directorate at USACR.
To be on the safe side, you shouldn’t be on your smartphone when you’re in a busy place or crossing the street. Eyes on the road, as they say.
Keep that in mind while you enjoy this video of perhaps the most famous distracted walking incident ever caught on film.
