(KPLR) – In Monday’s “The Way It Oughta Be”, have you ever wanted to convince someone to put their phone down, you now have some help.  

I don't know why it rattles me so much, but I cringe whenever I see someone walking and texting.

I now have some ammunition to go after those folks.  A study found texting and walking can be bad for your posture.

We've already reported on the dangers of texting and walking.  Emergency Department phone related accidents are even on the rise.

So even if you don't care about bumping into someone else, I can only hope you'll care about your appearance.

I'm JB, and that's “The Way It Oughta Be”.
