Slower maps won't stop distracted driving

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is out to destroy distracted driving. I can understand that, but some of the things the NHTSA things are going to help fight the problem are just ridiculous. The NHTSA has filed new guidelines recommending the carmakers GPS makers remove continuously moving maps from vehicles. The agency also wants continuously scrolling text removed.

It's not mandating these changes, but recommending them. The NHTSA thinks going to static maps or semi-static maps along with similar text is what drivers need not be distracted. A semi-static map will be one only updated every few seconds. I don't see this on distracted driving in the least, do you?
