Have you ever walked into someone, tripped or narrowly avoided causing traffic chaos because you were too busy looking at your smart phone?
According to health workers, a lot of us have.
The number of people being admitted to hospital with smart phone-related injuries is rapidly on the rise, as we become more desperate to connect on the go.
‘Dumbwalking’, as it’s known, is the zombie-like state caused by a desire to check texts, emails and apps.
And we’d like to know about your experiences - what’s the worst, or most embarassing, thing you’ve done while ‘dumbwalking’? Or are you just fed up of seeing others engrossed in their phones?
