近日,西安街头出现了一条“低头族专用通道”,引发网友热议。 西安现“低头族专用通道”引争议 The walking path for phubbers in Xi'an, Shaanxi Province [Photo: Sanqin Metropolis Daily] The one-meter-wide, 100-meter-long track is painted in red, blue, and green, with pictures of mobile phones and the words "special walkway for phubbers" in Chinese. 这条宽1米长100米的通道被漆成红、蓝、绿色相间,上面还有一个手机的图标,并用中文写着“低头族专用通道”。 Phubber(低头族)这个词来源于phubbing,phubbing是 phone和snubbing(冷落)的合成词,意思就是因为有了手机就冷落了周边的人和事(snubbing anyyone and anyting else in favor of a mobile phone)。 该通道一经曝光即引发争议,有人认为:在路上低头玩手机本身就非常危险,设立“低头族专用通道”可能会鼓励和纵容这种行为。 该通道建设方则表示,他们铺设“低头族专用通道”,主要是为了警示“低头族”。 The walking path is a good way of reminding people to put their phones away and pay attention to their surroundings for their own safety and the safety of others. 这条通道对人们有很好的提醒作用,让他们收起手机,为了自己和他人的安全多关注周边的环境。 不过,也有网友表示,低头族都忙着看手机,根本不会看到什么专用通道。 西安现“低头族专用通道”引争议
