People nowadays are absolute cell phone crazy!
They have totally become "phone addicts " and use it all the time. Why not? There is so much that you can do on that one little thing. Text, talk, learn, surf, play and so much more.
And walkways just seem like the right time to use them. Because when you are walking you are unoccupied!. But sometimes our social activities on the mobile phone becomes annoying and unsafe for other pedestrians. So, in the city of Belgium, an authority has allotted separate "text walking lanes" for phone addicts so that they can safely use their smartphones without disturbing others.
