Officials at East Japan Railway Company have begun asking people not to use mobile phones while walking inside train stations.

The move came after a 5th-grade boy suffered minor injuries when he fell off the platform onto the train tracks at Tokyo’s Yotsuya Station. He was looking at his phone screen while walking.

Posters saying “No cell phones while walking” are on display in Tokyo’s Shinjuku Station. Announcements are also being aired inside the station, asking people not to use cellular phones while walking.
