Drivers are warned about Ipod zombies


These 'zombies', the AA said, wander blindly around the roads of the UK, probably listening to Dan Brown audiobooks, Kenny G, or avante-garde funk on their Ipods, with nary a second thought about traffic and other non-cool things like that.

"AA patrols have noted a marked increase in the number of 'Ipod zombie pedestrians' and joggers oblivious to traffic around them as they cross busy roads," it said. "It is thought that pedestrians' lack of attention may be a factor in some of the 500 pedestrian deaths or 26,887 pedestrian casualties last year."

Ipods are not the only tool of the devil, and ambulance chasing solicitors and the AA also fingered smartphones and the band Motorhead in its release. "It appears that more people are using communication technology on the move," it added, pointing its oily finger at email checking business men, heavy metal joggers and smartphone app using, restaurant hunting tourists.
