Tuesday, May 1, 2018
“In a split second you could ruin your future, injure or kill others and tear a hole in the heart of everyone who loves you”
—Sharon Heit, Mother of texting while driving victim
Every year, more than 3000 people are killed across the US in distracted driving accidents. On a road, you’re responsible for a lot more than just getting to your destination. As a part of this society, your civic responsibilities go up manifolds once you come out on to a road. However, it is understandable that in today’s fast moving world, letting go of our cellular devices can cost us an important call or a text from someone. Well, the same technology that gave us smartphones, has given us other sophisticated options to keep in touch with our worldly chores without endangering any lives on the road.
Here we list a few gadgets that can go into your car to make life less of a hassle.
This wireless connection technology has been around since 1998 and comes standard in most smartphones today. A vast number of car manufacturers give Bluetooth connectivity as a factory fitted option in most models. However, if your car didn’t have one pre-installed, you can buy one and have it fitted in your car. It allows hands-free usage of your cell phone to make calls, play music, reply to texts and more, making it possible for you to keep your focus on the road while driving.
Voice activated entertainment systems
Powered by Bluetooth connectivity, voice activated systems allows a larger range of functions than a simple connector. They allow satellite navigation, browsing the internet and streaming videos over YouTube. Although some of these actions are not recommended while driving, you can perform them while stationary from within your car and as such they make life a lot easier and effective because you can perform numerous important tasks on the move.
Collision avoidance systems
These sophisticated systems come loaded with a host of functions that assist you while driving. The features include collision warnings for other vehicles or pedestrians, lane deviation warnings, speed limit warning etc. These systems are particularly useful on road trips where you might feel tired or drowsy at times but they can also be helpful for everyday commutes when you’re in a hurry to get to work or returning home after a hectic day at the office.
A number of times reversing is a nuisance because of limited visibility or the driver being unable to determine what might be lurking behind their vehicle. Back-up cameras come in handy for these situations by not only providing you eyes on the back of the car but also providing assistance to the amount of distance you are from the object behind you.
With all these latest gadgets at your disposal, driving has become considerably less dangerous; however, human intervention is still at the top of any preventive measures. Despite these systems you can still have a crash if you’re distracted long enough. Therefore, when on the road, it is important to focus on the task at hand, i.e., driving. You always have your on-board equipment to help you with the rest.
