Meet the “smombies”:
Roughly one in six pedestrians hypnotically tune into their phones and out of the real world while crossing the street, DEKRA found. Most pedestrians observed were texting, while others were plugged into headphones, making calls, or both texting and making calls at the same time.
Stockholm had by far the worst smartphone abusers with 23.6 percent, or nearly a quarter of people on foot distracted by their phones while crossing through traffic.
Amsterdam on the other hand had the lowest number of “smombies” (smartphone zombies) at 8.3 percent of pedestrians, while Berlin fell somewhere in the middle at 14.9 percent.
