Dis­trac­ted wal­king

Vocable (Anglais) - - À 360° -

A huge shop­ping mall lo­ca­ted in the Chi­nese ci­ty of Xi’an has im­ple­men­ted a new stra­te­gy to pro­tect pe­des­trians who are glued to their cell­phones: pe­des­trian lanes spe­ci­fi­cal­ly for cell­phone users. The lane is pain­ted with mes­sages ur­ging pe­des­trians to look up. “Dis­trac­ted wal­king,” as the WHO calls it, has lead to thou­sands of pe­des­trian deaths in Chi­na.
