Driver Distraction on the Rise

Posted by Jeremy Rosenthal | Nov 28, 2014 | 0 Comments

The American Automobile Association commissioned a study at the University of Utah concerning the level of driver distraction presented by voice-controlled technology in new cars, according to NPR. The study concluded that many of the new voice-controlled technologies more distracting than talking on the phone.

Notably, voice-to-text technology which allows the driver to send and receive email without using his or her hands, was determined to create what the researchers described as inattention blindness. The activity cognitively impaired drivers to the point that they were often unable to see hazards even though their eyes appeared to be looking right at them.
