The Canadian Wireless Telecommunications Association wants you to cut out the texting and walking. Canadians send nearly ten million messages an hour – or 227 million per day. The association says texting while driving is a major no-no, but wants pedestrians to take precautions too. Association president, Bernard Lord, says people need to be aware of their surroundings so they don’t run into trouble – like getting hit by a car. Despite hands-free or distracted driving laws in a number of provinces, texting accidents continue to happen. A Quebec woman died January in a car accident that happened while she was texting behind the wheel.
