It’s come to this.
Hong Kong (CNN) — Tired of bumping into people glued to their phones? One Chinese city thinks it has the answer: It has divided a sidewalk on one of its busiest streets into two lanes — one for cellphone users and the other for those without.
The sidewalk is in the city of Chongqing in southwestern China. Fifty meters long and three meters wide, it has warning signs painted in white on the ground.
The road, known as “yangrenjie” or foreigners street, is a popular tourist attraction in the city because of its faux Western architecture and an amusement park.
