HEAD­PHONES ARE A DAN­GER

Move! - - EDITOR’S NOTE -

Head­phones al­low wear­ers to fo­cus in­tensely on what they are lis­ten­ing to. But for a driver or a pedes­trian on the road, head­phones can be a deadly dis­trac­tion. When a driver is lis­ten­ing to mu­sic in the car stereo sys­tem, he or she is still able to hear an emer­gency siren, but with head­phones he or she can't, sim­i­larly with a pedes­trian. There­fore, your abil­ity to re­spond to dan­ger that is not im­me­di­ately vis­i­ble is blocked.
