If this isn't the height of ridiculous I don't know what is.
It seems that 62% of London has suffered injuries running into lamp posts, bins and other pedestrians due to texting on their cell phones while walking. The brilliant solution? Let's put big white pads on the lamps. What's next? People, trees and pedestrians? What the flippin' f**k? How about a little self-accountability, people? I don't even know what to say about this, but I think this commenter was spot-on:
"One has to think that a better approach would
be to put sharp spikes on the posts."
