Dedicated Mobile Sidewalk in Chongqing

A dedicated mobile sidewalk lane has opened in Chongqing China, it stretches 30m and is to allow more space per square meter for those too engrossed in texting, gaming or social networking to see where they’re going.


The property manager responsible said ‘it was supposed to be ironic, to remind people that it can be dangerous to tweet whilst walking’. The idea was taken from a similar project in Washington D.C. there is a 50m stretch of path next to it that prohibits the use of mobile devices.
