I'm old enough to remember the old radios in cars that consisted of four large buttons that you pushed in to get pre set stations. If you wanted more you turned the knob left or right. They were happy times, that was about it in those days for in car entertainment and if you needed to make a phone call you drove around until you found a telephone box and there were a lot of them about.
Now it's CD's, mp3's and dvd's. Not to mention GPS systems and speed camera detectors with built in radar detector, kids playing games or watching movies in the back. There are bluetooth phone systems, some on speakers and some using a headset. It seems one power plug in a car is just not enough these days. I myself have a three way adapter in my car to handle the extra devices.
With more cars on the road now and the standard of driving getting worse seemingly by the day is there now too much going on in cars? Are the distractions just making things a lot worse?
I know there's a law against using mobile phones but I've seen no decrease in their useage. What is the answer? Is there an answer?
