Motion in the name of Councillor Frank Kennedy: "In light of the ever growing practice of people using smartphones while walking (in particular sending texts and reading emails and articles), which creates serious risks to health and safety including that oblivious smartphone users could step onto oncoming traffic, be hit by cars and bicycles, or walk into stationary objects, this Committee resolves that Dublin City Council conducts an assessment of the ways in which it could (a) encourage people not to engage in this practice and to be aware of the serious consequences that it can cause, and (b) introduce safety measures to prevent injuries and collisions."
