Nomophobians are breathing a sigh of relief in China.

The Chinese city of Chongqing has created the world’s first lane for mobile phone addicts who simply cannot put their beloved devices down – although before you roll your eyes, relax: It’s in a theme park, not the city’s actual sidewalks.

The 100 ft-stretch of pavement was specially painted for individuals who have their eyes perma-locked to their screens.

The dedicated smartphone lane has a picture of a phone etched on the ground with the word “cell phones” boldly written down. Officials also drew two thick white lines separating the lane from the rest of the pavement.
