rather than being punished by the police, the penalty for not hearing traffic is getting run over and killed or injured. Kind of a Darwin thing

it's probably illegal to drive a car into a bridge abutment or into oncoming traffic, but the police penalty is the minor consequence

I see drivers of cars with earbuds in all the time, and assume the police see them too

Fortunately this is a debate that will continue to resurface forever. It's the gift that keeps on giving
