For all those walking and texting without looking, now there's a solution

Every day, thousands of unsuspecting people are bumped, knocked and walked into by smartphone users.

The multi-tasking trend sweeping the nation of texting and trying to do literally anything else is pushing society to the brink. But now, one university has decided to take a stand against the worldwide pandemic.

By giving texters their own lane on the stairwell.

That's right, those people on their phones who are unable to avoid others while they conduct their thumb symphony are now blessed with their own lane to walk in.

If you thought coloring between the lines was hard as child, just wait until you try to navigate Utah Valley's stairwells - texting while remaining in your lane.

Surprisingly, the new directive has not been obeyed by students on campus, who see fit to weave in and out of the walking and running lanes, cell phone in hand. 

While the anarchy ensues, more lines are expected to be added to the university's buildings.
