But then, you'd be looking down at the ipod to change a song and BAM! you slam into a car... I'd rather hear a song twice.

I carry mine in my breast pocket with the screen facing out, so that I can just push on the jacket to play, stop, forward or reverse from outside of the jacket.

I don't have it on, when riding thru traffic, but when it is on, it's low... mostly so I can hear it when I'm stopped at a light. Additionally, you can hear everything around you just fine as long as it is NOT blaring.

I concur, unless you want to be like the cagers who multi-task while driving.
