Massive Sculpture Moved Because Texters Kept Walking into It

(Photo: Sophie Ryder)

This is artist Sophie Ryder and her sculpture titled The Kiss. It's 20 feet tall and has an interior gap of 6 feet, 4 inches tall.

The statue was located over a pathway at the Salisbury Cathedral in the UK. Officials recently moved it because it proved to be a menace. People found themselves innocently texting on their phones while walking when BAM!--the sculpture would leap in front of them, causing accidents.

You can see photos of The Kiss and a video of its relocation at The Telegraph.

They shouldn't have moved the sculpture. Are they going to move the street because people walk into the intersection without looking? (I've personally seen this happen). Stupidity should not be met with accommodation.
