Walking can be an arduous task on its own, but when coupled with additional activities, walking can be downright dangerous.

Since the invention of the text message, walkers everywhere have become a danger to themselves and an annoyance to everyone else when they walk and text. ImprovEverywhere has come up with a solution for the walking while texting epidemic - Seeing Eye People.

In this video, the improv group takes to the streets of New York with orange vests and leashes, helping texters get to their destination without walking into telephone poles or unsuspecting bystanders. Soon, cities everywhere may be employing the services of Seeing Eye People.
