I am all about safety and if something will save even ONE life…I think it is a good idea. That said, I just find it sad that it has come to this point where texters cannot even look up to cross the street. Pedestrians are not the only ones to blame for accidents that have happened, there are drivers out there that run red lights, or don’t see someone walk. That said…whatever happened to the rule “Stop, Look and Listen”
A Dutch town have now put lights on the sidewalk for people who may be looking at their phone.
Again, I think it is a great idea because it will help some people. It may even help those who may not have good eyesight. The fact it is positioned to help “Texting walkers” just made me sad a little… but this is a good thing in the end.
