Phones may warn pedestrians of traffic

The next generation in automotive safety could include crash protection for pedestrians carrying smartphones.

Steven M. Sweat‘s insight:

Not sure about this one.  As an attorney who assists pedestrian accident victims, I’m all for new technologies that boost safety.  However, the “smartphone”, in my opinion, is causing more distractions and pedestrian mishaps as we speak.  I think walkers ought to rely more upon good old fashioned awareness of their surroundings.
