Walking while using mobile phones is as dangerous as dialling and driving, a Queensland University of Technology survey has found.

The survey of 210 people in Brisbane found one in five texted at least once a day while crossing the road, with some admitting they do it much more often.

The same went for making or receiving calls and about 12 percent used the Internet on their phone while crossing the road.

While the research is in its infancy, QUT’s Amy Williamson said 30 per cent of those polled so far admitted to having a near-miss with a vehicle and 15 per cent blamed their phone distraction.
