Ever bumped into something or someone while walking and looking down at your phone? Or got bumped into by people who were using their phone? It’s not as much of an exception as it used to be, and we’re often reminded that there are indeed inappropriate or even dangerous situations for using a phone.
Still, we find it difficult to not use our phones. The main reason? Research shows people are actually addicted to using their phones. Being disconnected for a short period of time can lead to feelings of anxiety, fear and depression. This Fear Of Missing Out makes people use their phone while walking.
Now that walking on a side walk is not what it used to be, a busy theme park in China decided to create cell phone lanes, where people can safely use their devices while walking. And if you’re not using your device? You get your special lane too.
