March of the smombies
March of the Smartphone zombies!
Pedestrians, cyclists and drivers glued to smartphones are putting their own and other road users lives at risk. 
Discuss with your class what a smartphone zombie might look like.

Here are some statistics.
A recent poll by the AA found that 
  • 70% of drivers often see pedestrians distracted by their smartphone, step into the road.
  • 66% of drivers often see pedestrians wearing headphones, step into the road.
  • There were 446 pedestrian deaths in 2014 due to 'lack of attention'

Film of distracted driver
This is a video of a very extreme case of a driver using a mobile phone, lap top and wearing earphones whilst driving. Many adult drivers often use mobile phones and earphones whilst driving. 
  • Ask your class for their comments about this film.
  • Talk about how they can discuss this subject with the adult drivers in their family.
Test your observational skills
Have a go at this driving test with your class and see how observant you are.
