Being on the Phone
Yeah, this is gonna get you killed. Or, at least, grievously injured. Either way, not a pretty picture. According to the study, "about 8 percent of both pedestrians and cyclists said they were injured while using an electronic device, including a cellphone or music player. For victims ages 7 to 17, the numbers climbed to more than 10 percent of pedestrians and nearly 30 percent of cyclists." So, stay off your phone, stay off your "music player", which, I guess, for some people still isn't the same thing? Anyway, be safe. Playing Words with Friends is not worth risking death. Not even when you get to slip "ZA" into a triple word score. Not even then.
