AA threatens of "iPod Zombies"
The Automobile Association (AA) has stated that people who listen to music on their iPods are at a greater risk of having a road accident.
AA states that population of "iPod zombie pedestrians" and joggers are little or no careful at all with the ongoing traffic around them, and majorly is due to iPod listening.
The association adds that pedestrians listen to iPods or access their e-mail whilst they walk or cross the road. And this might be deemed as one of the reasons behind 500 pedestrian deaths or 26,887 pedestrian casualties stated in 2009.
The pedestrian lack of attention has reported 17 collisions each day, where the figures continue to increase by 5 percent each day.
AA President Edmund King through a statement said, "We can't stop the march of technology but we need to halt the 'iPod pedestrian, cycle and driver zombies'. Whether on two feet, two wheels or four, too many people are suffering from so-called 'iPod oblivion."
