University adds "texting lane" to staircase

Utah Valley University has a new design for some of its staircases.

The stairs are divided into three lanes: a "walking lane," a "running lane," and a "texting" lane.

They're all labeled with neon stripes.

The school's creative director says it wasn't really meant to improve safety or direct foot traffic. It was an attempt to engage students and liven up the campus.
