Like We Don’t Have Enough Accidents on 17
I found a story today about how General Motors is launching a new feature in their cars where you can shop for things like Dunkin Donuts and Shell gas on the touchscreen on your dashboard, while you were driving. According to the Business Insider, they claim it's not going to be too distracting because it's easy to use and only takes a few touches.
How is this even going to be legal? Most states have anti-texting laws to keep people from getting distracted while driving. And now, you're going to be ordering a dozen donuts while you're driving down the road? Business Insider quoted a spokesman saying 'for most retailers and brands, the daily commute is the only time not accessible in a customer's day.'
I know there are times where it feels there are not enough hours in the day, but please, don't shop while you drive. Regardless of what you buy, you won't be able to enjoy it if you are 6 Feet Under.
