Recently distracted driving programs included the budget of $330 million over six years to increase awareness and encourage stakeholders to take action. Every year thousands of people die because of vehicle accidents related to distracted driving. The problem gets even worse with the new vehicles that are coming equipped with manufacturer in-built car entertainment systems and in car social media access.
These in-built distraction technologies in the vehicles would encourage more distracted driving habits, over the years, as people would be able to surf Internet or get connected with the social media networking. We strongly believe that these information access, right in front of the driver’s eye would only encourage distracted driving, and, someone has to take responsibility, if the vehicle gets involved in an accident, while they were distracted by the manufacturer installed entertainment system and social media accessibility system.
5,500 people die due to distracted driving behavior that may have been due to distraction that manufacturers of the vehicle put in the dash of the vehicle.
