Never mind distracted drivers - how about preoccupied pedestrians?


I had to laugh at the news that a Chinese shopping center has installed a "lane" for people who want to - or who can't stop - walking while looking at their cellphones.  It sounded so ridiculous that I could hardly believe it, but apparently it's real.

One can understand why it's needed, of course . . .








Er . . . oops?

If I were walking down the street in SF, I wouldn't be on my phone, and I might see Chewbacca, but it might not register as anything unusual.

You'd be too busy dodging bum dumps to notice Chewbacca.
