Paying attention to the road while driving is imperative for safety, however, many people believe they can safely take on even more distractions due to the increase in vehicle technology.

Although it doesn't seem to be evolving very fast, automotive technologies available to the public actually are. That's a good thing, and it is a shame when some industries stop rapid innovation, as it is the consumer that is hurt.
