    That should be illegal! It constitutes interference with evolution.

    Good one Marv! Natural Selection!

    And how much to install and regulate that little ditty! If I were to have to spend ~$40k on such a device it would probably be more like a big mechanical hand that slips out of the crosswalk pole and grabs them by the...Or a big RoboCop Voice that says Walk Now, Walk Now...when the light is green...

    The idiotic preoccupation with smart phones and the incessant finger-farking of same has no bounds. We've seen sphone accessories like the phone-drone to allow one to take better selfies; the next step will be sphone built-in lidars to give early warning of the approaching train you've just stepped in front of.

    (With a really fast computer that can get out a tweet of your demise before it (and you) become a smear on the front of the engine.)

    I'm kind of in favor of built in tasers coordinated with wearables, that go off when stupidity arises. Saw in the news yesterday that Marin County has joined the Dark Side and banned anymore cell towers (5G) because of EMF, when All they really need is more trains and 7nm cell chips (now being made) so they can "tweet their demise".

    Wouldn't take much to dovetail both Marv's prediction, and PJs mechanical response in one swift operation.

    but I'd ensure hand is large enough to grab them by both.

    The RoboCop voice wouldn't phase them; they're adept ignoring ambulance and other sirens.

    TM51! A larger hand...good idea! You are probably right about the voice but directed, at about 80-90db it could be quite intimidating...if not maybe add the spin up sound of a mini gun.

    Marv most of them walk around with an ear bud in both ears and the noise escaping around those is already 80 DB they would never hear the spin up of a mini gun.
    the best solution is to allow nature to take its course and get the ins companies to offer free repairs to the vehicles. Baring that a huge spring actuated tennis racket mounted on the pole at the cross walks to knock their inattentive butts back to the side walk.
    But I am still in favor of free auto repairs
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    Some folk cant walk on such undulating ground without tripping, let alone look at a phone.
    Reminds me of beggars with swipe/tap devices for donations.

    What color will we paint these divisions? Bike riders can sometimes keep within a green zone: but what if they are on their smart device (not their ass).
    We're a weird mob.
