When you hire a personal driver to drive you around Los Angeles, you can sit back relax, and use your smart phone or infotainment systems without endangering your life by having distraction in the form of smart phone or infotainment system in the car.
Infotainment systems were created by Google and Apple. They come as a standard feature in about a dozen car models. Of course, you always have the option of having one installed for an extra charge when you purchase your new car.
Ideally, infotainment systems started out as a good idea. The system allows users to use a voice activated system to do the following while driving:
• Write and send text messages
• Write and send Twitter posts
• Write and send Facebook posts
This allowed the driver to keep their eyes focused on the road in front of them. All the while, Google and Apple have been working with automobile manufactures to allow users to have access to their smart phone apps including:
• Contact lists (email and phone numbers)
• Basically anything you add to your smart phone as an app can be displayed on the ipad (larger in some cars) size screen in your console (that place a small radio use to be.)
However, the one thing that was not taken into consideration was the text messages, Twitter posts and Facebook posts that were being received by the driver that are not all voice activated. In order to read any of the messages or posts the driver has to look at the screen, hence, taking their eyes off the road where they belong.
Smart Phone Technology Systems Go Hand in Hand with Death and Serious Injuries
A multi-vehicle accident caused by an individual using smart phone technology, the individual had sent and received 9 text messages in the 9 minutes before the accident. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has concluded that the driver was sending a text message at the time of the accident. The driver who was texting was killed as was a teenager in another vehicle; in addition, 35 other people were injured in the accident.
