Wi-Fi In Cars, Dangerous or Desirable?
Texting while driving is against the law, we all know this, and new studies have now addressed concerns about providing Wi-Fi in cars, do you think this is dangerous or desirable?
Are you planning on purchasing the following vehicles?
Chevrolet, Corvette, Impala, Malibu or Volt, if so, be mindful that with new technology comes new distractions that could end up costing you, or even worse, harming yourself and those around you. Many of these auto models now come equipped with wi-fi technology, allowing drivers to spend more time on their mobile devices, rather than with their eyes on the road.
“Many people assume that talking to a voice-operated device will be as safe as using a hands-free cell phone, but neither activity is safe,” said Professor Ian Spence, Department of Psychology at the University of Toronto, and author of the new study.
Having high-speed Internet access in the car can be dangerously distracting, anytime a device is requiring you to take your hands off the wheel and eyes off the road there is a greater risk for an accident.
Protect yourself, others, and your car insurance, think twice before purchasing a car with wi-fi enabled technology and spend more time with your eyes on the road.
