In Japan, a fairly unusual ban has emerged, although it will only work in one Japanese city – Yamato. In this city, authorities have prohibited the use of a smartphone while walking the streets.
This is reported by the NPF, referring to Kyodo News.
It should be noted that this prohibition is purely advisory in nature. Therefore, if a person violates this prohibition, no penalty is provided.
Authorities in the city of Yamato recommend residents not to use a smartphone when moving around the streets. But, if suddenly a person needs to use his gadget, then for that he must withdraw where he will not interfere with the crowd of passers-by.
Authorities in the Japanese city of Yamato have decided to introduce such a ban on the safety of city residents. After all, as Japanese scientists have discovered, when someone on the street is distracted by a smartphone, their viewing angle is reduced. In addition, the person is not sufficiently focused on the movement. Thus, a pedestrian risks falling under the wheels of a car.
Note that the ban takes effect on July 1, 2020.
Earlier, we reported that in the United States, a gunshot wound to the head had killed Nikita Khrushchev’s son.
