Pretty inventive, aren’t they? I honestly think they did a great job on this one. I mean, it certainly captures the attention and interest of the teenagers they’re trying to protect.

We have the same problem in Chicago. The mayor is talking about outlawing everything distracting — because while iPods are an issue with teens, if you get adults who are on cell phones while looking something up on their Blackberries, they’re going to be run over, too.

Of course, the problems aren’t the gadgets. People are just being idiots. At least here, even without cell phones or iPods, everyone walks out into the street with eyes averted, as if not seeing the car will make it go away. And they then want it to be the driver’s fault when they get hit.
