Have you walked into someone because you were focused on the YouTube video on your phone? Have you stepped out into traffic because you were having a conversation with a friend?
What about driving? Are you distracted by the GPS? Your pet?
Distractions while driving and walking can be dangerous.
The Pledge to Limit Technology Distractions was inspired by the 2016 freshman Common Read, A Deadly Wandering, by Matt Richtel. All UC students, faculty and staff are encouraged to take the pledge.
