AAA study shows infotainment systems distract drivers

Drivers in North Carolina probably know how easy it can be to get distracted on the road. The problem is compounded when new vehicles come with infotainment systems and other features. Researchers from the University of Utah have conducted a study of 30 such infotainment systems on new 2017 cars. The study was for AAA and shows how highly demanding the features are on people's attention.

None of the 30 systems had a low demand. Seven had a moderate demand, 11 a high demand and 12 a very high. Infotainment systems with a very high demand were installed in models like the Chrysler 300 C, Ford Mustang GT, Honda Civic Touring and Tesla Model S. Researchers state that manufacturers should be more selective about what they include since many of the features are irrelevant to driving: texting, updating social media, finger painting, etc.
