NHTSA Suggests New Rules To Curb Distracted Driving
The guidelines released today are the second phase of recommendations issued by NHTSA to curb distracted driving. The first were issued in 2013. Today’s recommendations come at a time when automakers have begun installing smart phone integration systems such as Apple’s CarPlay and Google’s Android Auto in more new models. The systems display a simplified version of Android and Apple smart phone interfaces on vehicle touch screens and offer limited access to some applications and phone functions such as maps, text message dictation, and phone use.
