5 Ways Technology Affects Driver Safety

Although we often hear about technology distracting drivers, today's gadgets actually have a hugely positive impact on driver safety. From hands-free phone calls to GPS navigation, it's easy to make the most of technology while on the road.

Navigation

 


GPS and smartphone apps are invaluable for driving through unfamiliar areas. With apps that read directions aloud before the designated turn, there's no need for a navigator to accompany you in the passenger seat. Navigation has come a long way since the days of paper maps and missed turns, so drivers can stay undistracted and on the proper route. For new drivers and trips into foreign countries, it is now easy to plan your route and avoid straying into unsafe areas.

Communication


Bluetooth Headphones are possibly the single biggest technological benefit to drivers everywhere. With gadgets like these, drivers are much less likely to take a hand off the wheel and hold up a smartphone while driving. From busy entrepreneurs to moms on the go, having a hands-free option for communication on the road is incredibly valuable. Giving the road one's full attention is a whole lot easier with helpful products like Freedom Bluetooth Headphones.

Entertainment


Although scenic, long road trips can become boring without a little music. Smartphones, online streaming and increased data storage mean it's possible to listen to a nearly infinite amount of songs while traveling. Falling asleep at the wheel can be a significant and scary problem, but the entertainment possibilities of modern technology make long trips much safer.

Self-Driving Cars

 


Self-driving cars are the ultimate key to staying safe while on the road. Eliminating the mistakes and unpredictability that humans bring to the wheel, it's possible to create an environment that's safer for everyone. This technological opportunity is another way to prevent problems during long trips, as there are no safety risks with fatigue or boredom when you're not the one driving.

Simulation

For teens learning to drive, simulations can provide a safe learning environment to make mistakes and understand driving basics before hitting the road. With driving programs and even virtual reality, it's possible to learn about practical driving skills with no risk involved. For new drivers of all ages, this technology is simply invaluable.

Overall, it's no question whether technology can have a positive impact on drivers. From easy-to-use communication tools to self-driving cars, the future of technology and automobiles is surely exciting.
