YOU’VE PROBABLY NOTICED that the growth in smartphones has led to an increase in people walking and looking at their screen at the same time.

A Dublin TD said this week that this “distracted walking” means people aren’t paying proper attention to what they’re doing, and could lead to accidents.

Poll Results:

Sometimes, but I try to avoid it (3587)
No, never (2175)
Yes (2106)
