As I feared and expressed, I saw on the national news that the newest studies show that all the new interactive electronics such as touch screens and voice activation for HVAC, GPS, entertainment, and communication are proving to be much more distracting than previously though, more than just, say, cell phone use, etc.

The test drivers found it very difficult to avoid being drawn to the screen almost against their will. Their comments were that it was hard to use the systems effectively or efficiently, often losing attention of their driving for many seconds at a time.

Who would have thought, duh, lol.

Another reason to perhaps avoid the new cars, regardless of how good they may be in driving, IMO.
