9 News reports that a number of automobile manufacturers are trying to make driving less distracting in this age of technology. For example, Chevrolet announced that a couple of models, the Spark and Sonic, will feature a technology that will allow text to voice and voice to text translation for drivers with compatible iPhones. Chevrolet believes that this would allow drivers to receive and send email and text messages without taking their attention away from the road in the same way that more traditional email and texting would. Focus group research conducted last year showed that the vast majority of smart phone owners keep them within reach while driving. Many experts believe, however, that simply not using the technology while driving is the safest options.

Distraction.gov, the official US government website for information on distracted driving reports that over 3,000 people died in car accidents involving distracted drivers in 2011. They say that drivers who use hand-held devices are 4 times more likely to get into a crash severe enough to injure themselves or others. The government, as well as many private agencies, are working on educating people on the dangers of distracted driving. Meanwhile, perhaps it is a start for auto manufacturers to work on ways to make the technology less distracting to drivers.
