Infotainment systems: distractions that cause car accidents

Get to know the car brands with the most eye-catching infotainment systems

For the first time of the history of the US, injuries caused by accidents have become the third leading cause of death in the country, according to the data submitted by the most recent report from the National Security Council (NSC).

The injury statistics submitted by the NSC confirm that the avoidable deaths have increased by 10% in 2017. These figures reveal that one American is accidently hurt every second and killed every three minutes by a preventable event, such as drug overdose, car accident, fall, drowning, among others.
Among the main causes of traffic accidents detected, according to a study funded by AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety and conducted by researchers at the University of Utah, are the touch screen systems (digital boards) of cars.

For the study, 30 digital dashboards were tested and it was discovered that all of them distracted drivers to some extent, putting them at risk of accidents.
