Modern cars made to be ?too much like lounges?

A safety group has warned that modern cars come with too much technology that is distracting drivers from the road.
Modern cars made to be ?too much like lounges?

The Institute of Advanced Motorists claims that gadget-packed cars are damaging efforts to improve driver concentration.

The Institute says that the rise of sat-navs and on-board phones and computers contribute greatly to accidents caused by distracted drivers.

New US guidelines have suggested that car manufacturers should avoid putting new technology into vehicle interiors in order to avoid ‘making them like lounges’.

 US statistics have shown that distraction when driving caused 3,331 deaths in 2011 alone, with the number thought to have since risen.

Sarah Sillars, of the IAM, says that these figures should not be allowed to be replicated in the UK and that education on the matter was the only way it can be avoided.

Sillars also claimed that whilst technology can make driving safer, it also has the potential to make it more dangerous by letting drivers feel too comfortable in their car.
