Smartphone Addicts Now Have Their Own Walking Lane in China [Must See]

   In so many developed and even developing countries and territories, there are lanes for pedestrians, lanes for bicycles, others for motorcycles, tricycles and another for other types of vehicles like cars, buses, trucks etc, but do you know that there's a place in China that boasts a different type of lane altogether ? Probably, you never knew before. This city has a lane for Smartphone addicts i.e. those that have their (e)y(e)s glued to their Smartphone's screen always, yes, i mean always.

   According to, the cellphone lane above was spotted in a place called Foreigner Street in Chongqing city, one of the five major cities in China. The sidewalk was most likely painted for everyone's safety, because, if there's distracted driving, there's also distracted walking, as perfectly demonstrated by the woman in the video below.

   Engadget also made mention of an experiment that the National Geographic performed earlier this year, in July to be precise. The society stenciled "NO CELLPHONES" on one-half of a DC sidewalk and "CELLPHONES: WALK IN THIS LANE AT YOUR OWN RISK" on the other half. So, what's the result ? National Geographic found out that the people actually glued to their phones didn't even notice the markings at all. Isn't it hilarious ? Extremely...

   Even though there is a city that has a sidewalk lane for phone addicts in China, there are still thousands of cities that doesn't have, so please be very careful where you use your phone. Don't chat, text or use your phone without paying attention when on the main road. We can only enjoy our smartphones when we are safe and in good health.
