Shock horror headline

The NZ Herald has a headline of “Mobile phones linked to 17 road fatalities“.

I await headlines such as:

* Having children in car linked to 39 deaths

* Radios in cars kill 29 people

* Passengers biggest distraction in car deaths – call for mandatory one person cars

* Killer food responsible for 24 road deaths

For once I agree with the Government and research on all driver distractions is needed, not just a knee jerk ban on cell phones which research to date shows are not even at the top of the distraction pile.
