Dutch Town Plans To Add LED Lights To Sidewalks To Protect Smartphone Users 1

Let’s be honest here, you and I are guilty of using our smartphones while walking, though not constantly but you’ve certainly done it once.

A lot of people have lost their lives because of their smartphones. You can check out my post here :


Horrible Moments Smartphones Have Caused The Death Of People.

A town in Netherlands is taking a keen interest in protecting pedestrians from being run over— specifically, smartphone-wielding pedestrians. They’re testing out strips of LED lights near intersections so smartphone addicts will know when it’s safe and unsafe to cross the street. Not everyone supports this plan.

It’s being tested in Bodegraven-Reeuwijk, which is just 25 miles south of Amsterdam. The street corners now have “light lines” of LEDs implanted in the sidewalks that light up red or green to correspond with when it is safe and unsafe to cross the street. The idea here is that “smartphone zombies” have their necks cranked down at their screens and distracted by what is happening on their phones, people just can’t pay enough attention to oncoming traffic

It’s never bad to get ahead of a potential problem before it happens, but these LED sidewalk lines are being met with some resistance. The Dutch road safety group VVN, for example, said that the idea rewards bad behavior. “It’s not a good idea to help mobile phone users look at their phones,”Jose de Jong of VVN, the Dutch Traffic Safety Association, told the BBC. “We don’t want people to use phones when they’re dealing with traffic, even when walking around.

People must always look around them, to check if cars are actually stopping at the red signals.” Similar pavement lights are being tested in the German city Augsburg. It’s going to take a while before we see this implemented in other parts of the world. Nigeria might probably not need this. Growing up in a country where drivers can be so reckless, it’s a rare sight to see someone glued to his or her screen for more than a few minutes. Some things can actually be blessings in disguise.
