Public: smartphone スマホの危険

Modern living: everyone has a smartphone and everyone is doing something on their phone and forgetting about the world around them. That is the message of this poster in the subway: don't use your smartphone while walking about!

スマホ  sumaho  abbreviation for smartphone

注意  ちゅうい  chū-i  pay attention, careful!

危険  きけん  kiken  danger

歩きスマホは危険です。 あるきスマホはきけんです。

aruki sumaho wa kiken desu

walking about with your smartphone is dangerous

巻き込み  かきこみ  kakikomi  stumbling into someone

転落    てんらく  tenraku  plunging onto something

衝突  しょうとつ  shōtotsu  crashing into someone

All these things can happen and not only inconvenience others, or endangering their life, but you could also stumble about and end up on the railway track - just when the train comes. It would not be a smart end to the smartphone conversation.

Please, don't walk about with your smartphone in the station: it is dangerous for others, but also for yourself.

According to the Economist's Intelligence Unit (EIU) the Japanese capital Tokyo is the safest city in the world. Researchers of this unit looked at many aspects  of security, e.g. traffic, crime, terror attacks and even digital safety. The Asian metropolis Singapore landed the second spot on the list, while Indonesia's sprawling capital city Jakarta achieved the lowest ranking. These results were published in the Safe Cities Index 2015.

The organisation examined fifty cities from around the world and Tokyo obviously ranked very high on all aspects of this investigation. Crime is very low in the megalopolis Tokyo, so keeping in mind that the city of Yokohama is right next-door to Tokyo, this score is particularly impressive. For environmental reasons the city has barred diesel cars and trucks from entering, while the various centres within the sprawling city have created extensive pedestrian zones: in many parts of the city cars have been moved out of the way.

Other huge cities with more than twenty million inhabitants like Shanghai, São Paulo, New Delhi, Mumbai and Mexico City all ended towards the bottom of the list. New York in tenth place is the only American city on the list.

PH10.29-1

Important for the researchers are two issues when determining safety: very high digital safety and the fact that women can easily and safely travel anywhere and at any time within the city. One could say this about all of Japan actually, but that was not the basis of this research.

ボゴタは世界で一番危険な都市です。

ボゴタはせかいでいちばんきけんなとしです。

bogota wa sekai de ichiban kiken-na toshi desu

Bogotá is the most dangerous city in the world.

In this last category the Colombian capital Bogotá scored an abysmal last spot. According to the EIU the chance that women are harassed and feel intimidated is highest in this South American city.
