Netherlands Introduces Pavement LEDs to Alert Smartphone Zombies
In the Netherlands, cycling is the most popular form of travel and drivers usually would not compete with pedestrians and cyclists. Thus, the number of road accidents is relatively low. However, smartphone zombies still exist, and if they are listening to music on their phones at the same time, they will be even more unaware of traffic conditions. To keep smartphone zombies safe, the Dutch town of Bodegraven is trialing a new ground-level traffic light system which alerts pedestrians when they are about to cross the road.
