Want to text and walk? Go to Belgium. Digital Trends says pedestrians using smartphones in the Belgian city of Antwerp are now using dedicated “text walking lanes”
Like The University of Utah and Chongqing in China, the text walking lanes have been painted onto Antwerp’s busiest sidewalks. While this was a clever marketing stunt by a smartphone company, residents now want to keep the lanes.
CTV Vancouver says there are more than 2,700 pedestrian injuries in BC each year, and over 40% of them are because pedestrians ignore traffic signals. Some U.S. cities have started ticketing ‘careless pedestrians’ for looking at their smartphones while crossing the street.
