NHTSA Wants Moving Maps Removed from Cars Voluntarily

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?

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
