smartphones stupid people. . . street near you

it’s only a matter of time folks, but what a sad reflection on modern life that such a health & safety measure – installing traffic lights on the pavement – is deemed necessary because so many of us are so addicted to our smartphones and social media that traffic lights at normal height are not in our line of vision
