If your car has some kind of Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS), like adaptive cruise control, lane centering steering, or even hands free steering, please note the studies of the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, which discovered a correlation between ADAS features and an increase of distracted driving
The research found that drivers who owned their vehicles – and therefore had more familiarity with ADAS technology — were more likely to drive distracted when these systems were active than when they were not. For example, some observed distracted driving behaviors included texting or adjusting the radio. Meanwhile, drivers with less experience using the technologies were more likely to remain attentive and engaged while the systems were engaged.
