DRIV­ING OFF TRACK

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - BIT RATE -

A study by Lan­caster Univer­sity and the Univer­sity of Lon­don says that us­ing satel­lite nav­i­ga­tion sys­tems can ac­tu­ally im­pair driv­ing abil­ity. Ap­par­ently, too much nav­i­ga­tion in­for­ma­tion makes driv­ers speed, swerve and fail to notice pedes­tri­ans. The study re­vealed that driv­ers tended to con­cen­trate on in­struc­tions be­ing given by the nav­i­ga­tors in­stead of fo­cus­ing on the road ahead of them.
