Belgian city introduces a special lane for texting...


...but only if you're walking.

Texting and driving is still a really bad idea, but I'm not sure this is much better. The Belgian city of Antwerp has introduced "text walking lanes" in some parts of the city. The idea is to keep people from running into each other while they text and walk, or at least from running into people who aren't texting.

Just why are the Dutch so tall?

Germany delays road toll

Germany had planned to introduce a road toll for all cars in 2016, but has delayed the plan after the EU challenged the legality. Many of the countries in Europe charge tolls for the use of their highways, some based on distance driven, others on time-based tax stickers similar to what Germany planned. The difference is that Germany planned to rebate to German citizens part of the tax sticker cost as a vehicle tax credit. The Eu has said that unfairly discriminates against foreign drivers.
