City in China creates walking lane for cell phone users
The city of Chongqing in China recently created a separate walkway for people who use their cell phones. The lane is divided in two: one for those who want to use their cell phones to talk, tweet, and text, and then another for those who don't.
While the idea of a separate walkway for cell phone users is a practical idea, a spokesperson for the group that manages the walkway says it's supposed to be ironic. "There are lots of elderly people and children in our street, and walking with your cell phone may cause unnecessary collisions here," says Nong Cheng.
The walkway is 100 feet long, and the cell phone lane is marked with the words "Cell phones, walk in this lane at your own risk." Given the fact that so many people text and walk these days, I wouldn't be surprised if more cities adopt this idea.
