Distractions Behind the Wheel Still Rage On

Posted in Car Dealer

No Distracted Driving SignWe hear about distractions behind the wheel all the time.  People get so frustrated when they witness distractions behind the wheel, to the point where it has become a hot spot for road rage!  Certain distractions are obvious, such as cellular phone and eating while driving, but what about the features that are built into your vehicle that are designed to be used while driving?  What kind of distraction does this cause?  While experts and concerned drivers take special note of these types of distractions, studies are continually being done that focus on how these distractions effect performance behind the wheel.  These studies are used by the engineers who are designing and implementing the technology in cars in order to provide the safest driving environment possible for car owners.  The issue becomes more of a concern when you look at the ever-changing world of technology in cars and having a car just a few years old may cause reason to be concerned about safety with technology features in them.

In a study conducted by Harris Interactive it was found that 76% of the adults surveyed “believe in-car technologies are too distracting and dangerous.” Many even suggested that automakers have taken technology too far. The auto industry would rightfully argue that they simply gave consumers what they were asking for, and that has been misused by people in the process. Staying connected is important to people but at the expense of what? It is likely that the auto industry will turn their focus on making many of the features people love safer to use.

If you are shopping for a new Mazda car, it is our goal at Nelson Mazda to make sure that you are fully comfortable with how all of the technology in your car operates so that you can handle it safely once on the roadways.  If you are concerned about how to properly use your features in your new Mazda car, contact us today and we would be happy to walk you through how it all works!  Nelson Mazda is your number one Car Dealer near Broken Arrow OK and we want you to be happy in your new Mazda!  Contact us today!

Safety testing is conducted by several different agencies including the National Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) as well as the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Both companies rigorously test a variety of vehicles for certain safety standards.
