iPods and road safety

Who says iPods haven’t changed the way the world works? Even governments are aware of the dangers of iPods. Even crossing the road can get you killed.

“… in Sydney, Australia and the New South Wales Police Force have released a road safety print campaign to raise awareness of the fact that teenagers are dying from crossing the road while listening to their iPods.” (link)

What happened to look both ways before you cross? Isn’t that a universally taught lesson? Next up: iPods with air bags.  I can see the slogan now: “Protect your dumbass with the latest iPod, new and improved, available with side impact air bags.”
