Philly Opening Up TEXTING Lanes??

Texting

Philadelphia, the city of brotherly love, may be the first city to understand your needs.  Maybe.
According to myway.com, ” lines on some sidewalks near City Hall now
designate part of the pavement as “e-lanes” suitable for chronic
texters and digital music aficionados – although only through the end of the
week.

It’s really just a stunt to celebrate April Fools’ Day week.

City officials and Mayor Michael Nutter are trying to draw attention to the danger of inattentive pedestrians. The lines, signage and sidewalk graphics– depicting a pedestrian peering down at a hand-held device–
will stick around part of John F. Kennedy Boulevard through Friday.

In all seriousness, because of the digital world that we now live in, should we have separate “walking lanes” on the sidewalks for texting and walking?  Comment below!
