I heard in London they padded lamp-posts so people wouldn't walk into them while texting.

It does sound a little silly, but in reality there have been alot of accidents(not just cars) from ppl not paying attention while walking and texting and have fallen into pot holes and such and braking ankles!
Can't remember where I read it now but one guy walked into an on coming car and was killed!

How do people text while walking though? Don't you look at the ground you're walking on, so you don't step on cracks? Haha.....but seriously, I always look where I'm going in fear of tripping and falling flat on my face.

Juno.....LOL! Are you serious? Or did you make that up?
