Dr. Bonnie Weil Warns Hands Free is Not a Life Saver, It Can Be Just as Much of a Distraction

The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety says workload and technology distractions increase reaction and reflex time slows. "What does that mean?" says Dr. Bonnie. This means your brain function is compromised and can slow your reaction time. This is even more so for teens whose brain (thus judgment) is not completely formed yet. So drivers are not looking at the road with peripheral vision and are missing warnings and visual clues researchers say. This includes the potential of missing stop signs, people crossing, motorcycles or people on bikes. In the past what was measured by surveys was manual and visual impact from texting etc. This study measured the serious impact of mental distraction and cognitive driving. "Texting using voice activated apps are just as dangerous as hand held texting."

"Car manufacturers beware," says Dr. Bonnie. "Please use safety first before offering "Unlimited" sexy extras to enhance marketing, especially for the teen drivers that are impressionable and vulnerable. I believe that car manufactures and tech experts should pay attention to the connection between mental distraction and new technology." These are not a great combination for safety amongst drivers.
