Driving with Headphones

Many people wouldn't think of going anywhere without their music library in their pocket. Whether it is on an MP3 player or even on a smartphone, a world of music can be at your finger tips and in your ears. But this convenience can be incredibly dangerous if someone decides to use headphones while driving.

Regardless of whether a person uses in-ear or over-the-ear headphones, limiting one's hearing while driving can be disastrous. If you or someone you love has been hurt by a negligent driver, contact the Kenosha car accident lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. by calling 800-242-2874 today.

Staying Alert

There are many sounds that enter into our processing and awareness when we drive, and most people don't completely realize it. Sounds that are less likely to come to your attention when your ears are blocked include:

  • Emergency vehicle sirens
  • Car and truck horns
  • Accelerating vehicles

Train Horns

Also, it is important for drivers to understand the difference between listening to music through their car's system of speakers and headphones. A car stereo projects music into the open cavity of your vehicle, so sound is diffused. Having headphones on, however, feeds sound directly into your ear, creating less opportunity for other important sounds to come to your attention.
