    Yes, but problem is those walkers need to look up from their phones to read the sign for it to work (need some kind of local broadcast to text the sign to those phones).

    Naturally, they fell for it – who wouldn’t? i certainly would, but then i suspect that as far as evolution is concerned – i am headed in the direction from where we came from.

    Something seen quite commonly now in the “great outdoors” where cell service reaches.

    The Wiley Bears™ are having a feast to remember at the bottom of the chasm!

    The bears sell the phones to Cell-Your-La-La over on In Security.

    Shouldn’t the safe path be the one the requires turning 90 degrees?

    Maybe they’re using one of those audio-guide map apps, the one where the recorded docent says “People viewing this next attraction almost always go ‘AAAAAAHHHH’!”.

    I exhort Congress to immediately form a national network of such trails.

    At first glance I thought our cartoonist had drawn a wall they would walk into, not a gully they would fall into. That double line atop the far edge fooled me. Good thing for those legs going over…

    I like this, but here in Florida it needs to involve alligators. Or bears — we have bears here, too.

    I nearly hit a woman who stepped off a curb in front of me while yakking on her phone. If I’d been driving my van instead of riding my bike home from work, she’d be earning a Darwin award right now. Naturally she screamed abuse at me when I yelled “Look out!”

    Now that’s my kind of “dropped call”.

    “I’m not saying “let’s kill all the stupid people”….."

    “I’m saying “Let’s remove ALL the safety labels, and let things sort themselves out”……"

    Curious thing about moderns. Once wore Tees inside out to show the label. Followed by shorts worn low enough to show ones’ ugliest feature. Then buy a hat with a bill to block the sun, and wear it backwards. Afraid to guess what’s next

    As long as we can get these people out of the streets. Much better they should be at the bottom of a cliff than on the hood of someone’s car!

    Accelerated evolution. Darwin will inevitably flush the DNA responsible for distracted walking from the gene pool so there is no point waiting ten generations for this to play itself out when you can just get it done in one.

    somebody needs to install the same technology used for self-driving cars into smartphones.

    This one needs to be set at night. On a dark road. With no lights. And everyone with a phone walking in the road. And wearing dark clothing. With people driving without headlights. You know, just like real life… And yet they survive…

    To people who seem to think it’s some sort badge of honor to not have a cell phone-Do you still have a wringer washer, rotary dial phone and black & white television? It’s just another tool (device) and its usefulness is what you make of it. I have one, as does my wife and we text each other frequently when we are not in the same place. To the witless people who seem to believe that your safety is my responsibility I ask-Is that device your servant or your master?

    The corollary to this law of nature is the Selfie-On-A-Cliff.

    If they started handing out the Darwin Awards in a fancy TV ceremony, the number of potential Nominees would Skyrocket.

    Hey, they get Nominated because they are Really Stupid.

    And they are also the demographic that will do Anything to be on TV.
