One Response to iPod = 25% increase in pedestrian deaths

    Surely “Podcasts” kill???
    Yes we all see it but no action taken – why. The woman not hearing the ambulance is fairly obvious a tip of an iceberg.
    Article talks about No evidence because Coroner reports take a year or so.
    But surely iPod around long enough for some evidence. Is it just that no one is collecting material.

    Lethal combination – phones stuck in ear and crossing a roundabout. I saw a man in dark suit the other night doing that. Don’t they know – Buses come up and drive over roundabouts.

    Good post
