    This is ridiculous, absurd and obviously costly to the German town.

    It's only a matter of time before cities and towns in the UK think about using these lights too.

    You shouldn't be looking at your phone whilst crossing busy streets.

    Thoughts?

    You cant fine someone for using their phone whilst walking. That's a completely ridiculous answer.

    I dont think they should be doing anything tbh. if you are crossing the road and you are paying more attention to the funny cat video on your phone than the oncoming traffic, then when you get hit by said oncoming traffic you deserve it.
