You wouldn't write a letter to someone while you are walking down the street. That would be crazy! So what makes texting any different? Walking and texting is becoming a real problem in London. Around 10 percents of us, that's about 6 million people have had an accident while texting just in the last year alone. Here in Brick Lane, this is actually the worst place for texting in the UK. 68 thousand people had accidents last year and this is the comfortable solution. The lamppost pad is set to revolutionize the High Street. If a pilot study in Brick Lane shows a marked reduction in text-related injuries, and these little babies could be rolled out across the country. So will Londoners reject the pads, resenting yet another intrusion of the Nanny State, or will we be grateful to them for keeping us safe? Len Goodman, London tonight, Brick Lane.
