Seems like a smart idea to me.
Of course, I have noticed more folks texting while riding too recently. Literally watch a guy try to text while riding across the 14th St Bridge.
Good point. Smartphoned just didn't have the same ring to it.
Smarshed. E.g., "New mobile app prevents cyclist from being smarshed into the pavement."

I don't know if it's funny or sad, but the editor of Greenbelt Patch thought this was serious (see comment):
GGW also had a nice treatment: http://greatergreaterwashington.org/...d-bike-safety/
At first glance I thought it might be serious. Once I saw and heard the dead pan acting in the video I knew what the idea was. It is sad that at first glance it might even be conceived of as serious. I'm going to post on my Facebook page and see how many people think it is real.
