Peds are never forced to text while crossing.

The placement of crosswalks often makes it so hard to get to places that people walking need to get to, as to provide a huge inducement to jaywalking, often making it almost impossible to accomplish a journey in anything close to a reasonable time.

Whether that is "forcing" or not, is to me a matter of semantics. There are also occasions where conveniencing peds makes drivers go out of their way, but my sense is that we do more to avoid such inconveniences, which seldom involve nearly as much time.
