A Belgian city believes it has come up with a solution to the problem of pedestrians bumping into other people because they’re texting while walking.
Antwerp has given smartphone users their own designated walking lanes marked ‘text walking lane’ on several busy pedestrian shopping streets.
No worries though, there are now believed to be more mobile phones in the world than people. There are about 7.5 billion mobiles, according to data provided by telecommunications companies. In comparison, the global population is estimated at 7.2 billion.
