Headphone danger warning after cyclist using iPod hit by tram

Cyclists who wear headphones while riding are increasing their risk of being involved in a serious crash, according to a transport safety expert.

The warning comes after a 45-year-old man cycled into the path of a tram while listening to his iPod in Melbourne’s south today.

The Windsor man was pushed along the tram tracks after he was struck on the corner of Williams and Dandenong roads in St Kilda East just before 1pm.

Paramedics say he was lucky to escape with only bruising to his leg and a sore knee in an accident that has put the spotlight on the divisive issue.

    But If you have your iPod stuffed up your arse like a certain tram driver we know what sort of trouble would you be in then Socky?

  2. SockPuppet says:

    Yu would be in more trouble than that famous inner-city homo Phil McCrack.

  3. Iain Hall says:

    I wonder if he has it on vibrate like a cell phone?

  4. SockPuppet says:

    WEll len with a yike bike you stand up so you could have the IpOD up your arse. The other thing that comes to mind is why arnt cyclists made to wear seatbelts?

  5. Len says:

    Brings new meaning to “surround sound” ?

  6. Iain Hall says:

    And ‘deep appreciation” as well

    But then if you were taking part in world Nude bike day where would you put your iPod

  7. SockPuppet says:

    I would put mine in the same place that the girl with her arms raised has put her seat.

  8. Len says:

    Just make sure your foot doesn’t slip on the pedals ?

  9. Serves him bloody right. Idiot.

  10. SockPuppet says:

    Shes holding up a sign now Iain.

  11. MK says:

    Now, now, the road is there to share, don’t forget. The tram driver obviously didn’t get the memo.
