The poster we are featuring today is “Cross like a human!”. Amal expresses, “Nowadays car accidents are happening more and more, day by day. So, people have to be more careful about it! It hurts me really. That’s why I thought – how I can share my opinion about it and create a social one. Posters are a good way to do it! I think I transferred my feelings into it”.
Texting while walking is more dangerous than we think, street accidents attributed to cell phone use has doubled within five years, when texting, you’re not as in control with the complex actions of walking. While talking on the phone is a distraction, texting is much more dangerous because you can’t see the path in front of you.
