Well known, is that smartphone use, specifically texting while driving and walking is dangerous to both the person and to all others either on the road or sidewalk. There is no question that smartphone use has an addictive nature and seems to be able to tap into something primal in the human spirit.
Recent news articles have come out to try to explain what is happening and why the addiction happens. Here is one on Texting and Addiction.

This driver did not even announce why he was detouring, so many people asked. He got so mad.
