Did you see that unicycling clown? Mobile phone users didn't - Health News, Health & Families - The Independent

Funny to see this now because just yesterday at the end of my bike ride, I saw a woman crossing the street pushing a stroller with a baby in it. The woman had trouble getting out of the street because the stroller was stuck on a 1 inch curb. She had trouble getting the thing over that little curb because she was pushing with only one hand as she spoke on her mobile phone with the other. Amazingly, rather than put the phone down for a moment to get herself and her child out of a busy street, she continued to push and prod the stroller for a few seconds this way and that, jarring the baby as she did, until she got over the curb.

Just a small incident, but I started thinking what a distraction these things are to parents with kids. Aside from the danger this mother potentially put her child in when crossing the street, I wonder how good it is for kids to have their parents' attention endlessly focused away from them.
