There's A Bigger Danger To Pedestrians Than Walking While Distracted

There's a lot of concern about pedestrians being hit by cars because they were distracted by smartphones.

But according to Mother Nature Network, the bigger threat facing pedestrian safety isn't a device.

It's old age.

Vision, particularly peripheral vision, deteriorates with age.

That makes it harder to gauge oncoming traffic.

Also, mobility decreases, forcing the elderly to walk more slowly.

What's more they may have to look down while walking, too.
