Pedestrian accidents are far too common in Oklahoma. Just recently, a 73-year-old woman was killed while crossing the street in Tulsa, Oklahoma. And in 2010, pedestrian accidents claimed the lives of 68 people in Oklahoma, according to the Oklahoma Highway Safety Office.

A recent scientific study revealed that texting while crossing the street significantly increases the chances of a pedestrian texting accident. Specifically, the odds of being hit by a vehicle while crossing the street increase by four times when pedestrians are texting compared to pedestrians who are not texting, according to research conducted by the Youth Safety Laboratory at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. And even more dangerous is listening to music and crossing the street at the same time, the same study reports.
