Michele Scarponi killed by video watching driver?

Professional Italian cyclist Michele Scarponi was killed in April this year when he was hit by vehicle whilst out on a training ride.

News reports today ahead of the suspects trial suggest that the driver responsible was distracted by watching a video playing on his smartphone.

Any use of a phone whilst driving is inherently dangerous whether live stream broadcasting, live stream receiving, checking social media, reading alerts, sending texts or taking calls.

The simple solution is to put the phone in the phone compartment and leave it there until your journey is complete.
