Is it safe to wear headphones when I run?

Headphone Warning

Only wear headphones jogging outdoors when you can be sure you won't be surprised by a car or a suspicious character. Even in situations that seem safe, look around before turning or veering from a straight line to be sure someone you can't hear won't run into you. It may be best to save your music or tape listening for the treadmill or stationary bike.

This is very good advice, a lot of people wouldn't think wearing headphones while jogging could potentially be dangerous. Thanks!
