    The dangers that wearing earbuds while driving causes have been detailed in many studies. In one such study, professor and researcher Dick de Waard conducted an experiment on bicyclists’ reaction time while listening to music with earbuds and while not listening to music at all. He found that 68% of auditory stop signals were unnoticed by the bicyclists that were listening to the music. He concluded that “listening to music [while wearing earbuds] worsens auditory perception.” From that research, we can infer that it is even more threatening for drivers of cars to listen to music using earbuds than of bicyclists. Drivers are even farther away from the noises they should be aware of because they are in a machine of steel and aluminum, so their response time while listening to music is likely worse than…

This causes drivers and bikers to weave in between the gaps of pedestrians which poses a hazard. Widening the roads is a solution to traffic congestion, but would not be suitable for this situation…
