UK’s FIRST MOBILE PHONE ‘SLOW LANE’ CREATED FOR DISTRACTED WALKERS

If you’re in @Manchester around @Spinningfields you may notice something different. Apparently, in a bid to see if the number of ‘accidents’ (not too serious, just people bumping into each other!) can be cut down. Apparently, it would seem that everyone is so busy checking their #phone, that they walk into each other! So two 75m long ‘safe lanes’ have been put in place to keep walkers separate whilst they go about their business. there is even a name for these people – #DALAP’s – Distracted as looking at phone. It did make me think, though, if we can’t be trusted to walk and use a phone then I am not surprised there have been calls to ban use of them in cars lately. I’ll be heading down to #Spinningfields to check this out – sounds like a right hoot!
