Padded lampposts for the safety of texting pedestrians

Friday, October 29, 2010

There is something wrong with the British.
Britain's first 'Safe Text' street has been created complete with padded lampposts to protect millions of mobile phone users from getting hurt in street accidents while walking and texting.

Around one in ten careless Brits has suffered a "walk 'n text" street injury in the past year through collisions with lampposts, bins and other pedestrians.

The 6.6million accidents have caused injuries ranging from mild knocks and embarrassing cuts and bruises through to broken noses, cheekbones and even a fractured skull.

the numbers on the padding give it away. 118118 is (one of) the numbers you can dial for directory enquiries. It's an advertising stunt. Nothing more.

C'mon - you didn't think it was anything else did you? We're not that bad...
