As technology continues to advance, so too does the number of potential distractions to drivers. More and more vehicles are now equipped with factory-installed smartphones, satellite radios, GPS devices and video/game player systems. Drivers of vehicles that don’t have some or any of these hi-tech devices factory-installed often bring such devices into their vehicles with them for use while traveling. There is no doubt that the use of these type of hi-tech devices while driving is an extreme safety hazard because the driver’s attention is distracted from the road while utilizing such devices. Most states have now passed laws that prohibit texting while driving. Some also prohibit hand-held cell phone use while driving, but still permit hands-free cell phone use. Because all of these devices significantly impair a driver’s attention to the road, their use should all be banned by all jurisdictions. Recent statistics show an alarming correlation between driver technical device use (particularly texting) and motor vehicle accidents.
