Mobile Use Is Hazardous - Not Just While Driving



Yet another research (Seriously, WTF!!).

The studies, in which participants crossed a virtual street while talking on the phone or listening to music, found that the music-listeners were able to navigate traffic as well as the average unencumbered pedestrian. Users of hands-free cell phones, however, took longer to cross the same street under the same conditions and were more likely to get run over.


Well there goes Idea's Walk and Talk idea.

I really want to know who keeps paying for all these bullshit studies / research. I mean, don't we all know that if you are not paying attention while crossing the road, you are 'more likely to get run over'. Did we really need a 'study' to tell us this??

Psst - JFTR, it's not just talking on the mobile.

You could be checking out a chick on the other side of the road while trying to cross the street and that too would imply that you are 'more likely to get run over'. I don't need a simulated experiment to tell me that!
