AAA reports Apple and Google Speed Ahead in Safer Design of Vehicle Infotainment Technology

 

AAA

AAATampa, FL – Apple CarPlay and Google’s Android Auto are less distracting to drivers when compared to built-in vehicle infotainment systems designed by automakers, according to new research from the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety.

While many of today’s infotainment systems create potentially unsafe levels of distraction by allowing drivers to perform complex tasks like texting or dialing, drivers using CarPlay and Android Auto to program navigation were visually and mentally distracted for 15 fewer seconds than when using the vehicle’s native system.

New AAA Foundation research shows Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are less distracting for drivers than automakers' infotainment systems, though still might create unsafe levels of risk.

Dodging the Roadkill: Instant Replay

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Am I the only biker who replays his trips and all the potential hazards, or “close calls” I encountered along the way?  

It’s a curious thing for me that after I return home, I replay all the “potential” incidents that “almost” happened while I was on the road.  I’m so focused on the road, the traffic, the weather and all that surrounds me at the time, that it doesn’t quite register, but for some reason, I replay all the “close calls” I had.

I distinctly remember the time I motored out to Texas, (which I LOVE by the way) and as soon as I got on the four lane roads, and the speed limit is 75, I passed a couple of “good old boys” who were hogging the left lane and when I sped past them, I gave them “the look” and when I turned my attention back to my lane, I was just about out of pavement.  I was just a few feet from the guardrail and I had to whip myself back into shape.
