Why is texting on the move dangerous?
Texting on the move is dangerous believe it or not.
The human brain cant handle multi-tasking and paying attention to several things at once.
Texting takes away attention from things surrounding you which can cause very dangerous consequences
When you text you're thinking about what to say, giving attention on what your thumbs are doing, and reading incoming messages rather than paying attention to what you're doing . That makes your risk of getting hurt or injuring others around you more likely.
