Dangers of Driving While Using Personal Music Players

Since Sony introduced the Walkman in 1979, technology has continually progressed to create new ways for people to listen to their music freely wherever they want. With the introduction of the mp3 player, people can now take their entire music libraries with them to school, work, the grocery store, and even in the car.

When motorists choose to listen to their personal music players while driving, they are putting themselves and other motorists around them in harm’s way. Wearing headphones and driving makes it extremely difficult for drivers to hear important sounds around them. If you or a loved one has been injured because of an individual who was using headphones while driving, contact your Iowa injury lawyers of LaMarca Law Group, P.C., today at (515) 705-0233.

Headphone Dangers

Listening to music through headphones while driving can be a very enjoyable experience, but it can also endanger you and other motorists. When you choose to wear headphones to listen to a music player, you lose the ability to hear important sounds like:

  • Sirens from emergency vehicles, such as ambulances, fire trucks, and police cars
  • Automobile horns to warn you of their presence and a potential accident
  • Train crossing bells
  • Crosswalk warning sounds

If you want to listen to your personal music device in the car, you should refrain from using headphones and instead use an adapter or transmitter in order to keep yourself and others safe.
