The majority of car infotainment systems actually increase distraction, not ease it. So says the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety and the University of Utah, which tested 30 different cars and found 23 create high or very levels of distraction across a range of scenarios. Only seven created what were described as moderate levels of distraction, and none reduced distraction. The information is helpful in setting the stage for more discussion and ignores longer-term trends, such as whether on-board navigation can be considered all that distracting when people were driving while reading folding paper maps 20 years ago.
