Phone Addicts Get Their Own Text-Walking Lanes In Belgium

After Chongqing in China and Washington DC in US, now Antwerp in Belgium has it’s own “text walking lanes”. A local smartphone specialist, MLab, discovered that a lot of people text while walking, then bump into each other and drop their smartphones. With broken screens, buttons or trashed cases as a result.

By jokingly placing “text walking lanes”, they want to prevent smartphones from breaking.

I want to walk against traffic in the "text walking lane" and just shoulder check all the a-holes who are glued to their phones.

P.S. I realize that would also make me a jerk, but boy would it be funny.
