I got to thinking it would be nice to get a mini-digital AM/FM radio with earbuds to listen to the local stations on the way to work.
However, after digging through just a few of the bazillion ipod threads, I have but one interesting thing to note. They are basically illegal to use with headphones/earbuds while riding in just about every state.
If so, why do so many people on here use them and disregard the law? I have been considering getting a mini-AM/FM radio with earbuds to listen to on the way to work. But then, why break the law? More importantly, why risk my life by not being able to hear the traffic around me? Does it make that much of a differance?
Has anyone here found it difficult to ride with the earphones?
