Drivers are distracted… HEY What’s that shiny thing?

I recently read about a AAA study claiming that using your “hands free” devices while driving is still dangerous! They say that newer cars have “dashboard infotainment systems that let drivers use voice commands to do things like turning on windshield wipers, posting Facebook messages or ordering pizza.”

I like the idea of turning on my wipers by yelling “WIPE!” as long as the computer doesn’t go haywire. I hope there is an override regular switch on the dashboard, in case I have laryngitis and wind up turning on my heater with anchovies.

As for the AAA study purporting that the human brain can’t handle these distractions;

I am not worried
As Boris Badanov said
No brain… No effect!
