Welp, it’s official. Smartphones are taking over the world! (Me included!)

They are now designing LIGHT UP crosswalks for intersections in big cities, all because everyone is too busy looking down at their phone to pay attention to where they’re going.

According to, since the behavior of people being glued to their phones won’t likely change, the city had to change how to keep them safe.

Enter the LED crosswalks!

The crosswalks will now be lit up, bumpy surfaces, that will help guide people safely across the street, without much effort on the walker’s part.

At least now we can play Pokemon Go without getting hurt, right? Maybe?
