A recent article in the Commercial Appeal reported that New York State was considering a new law that would impose a $100 fine on anyone who walked, jogged or biked a New York street with an IPod or cell phone in their ear. The article cited the death of a 21 yr. old man who was listening to music when he was hit by a bus. There are safety measures that can be taken to prevent accidents when using Ipods or other devices that might affect hearing. You will need to read the article “In world of distractions, helmets always help” posted in the Washington Times (http://www.washtimes.com/metro/20060614-115016-8183r.htm) before addressing these issues.
Address these three issues:
Why is wearing an IPod while engaged in these activities considered a factor that would lead to injury?
From the Washington Times article, what are some safety features that would allow for the use of the IPod or other device but reduce the risk of injury?
