NEW YORK - April 21, 2011: Although America has become aroused to the point of exhaustion with efforts to stop what has become known as "distracted driving," car makers are continuing to push all the latest electronic and technical marvels that make it nearly impossible to avoid driving while being distracted.

The Auto Channel first commented on the paradoxical situation about 15 months ago just after the 2010 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. It seemed to us then that while Ford did show off a lot of really cool automotive infotainment equipment that the devices were just new toys that would distract even the most conscientious driver. We also realized that if all studies that show that the average driver drives less than 40 miles per day, and that majority of accidents occur within 5 miles of a driver's home are true, then perhaps having all that extra fun stuff is just a great waste of money.

Now, at the 2011 New York Auto Show, Buick and General Motors have unwittingly joined Ford in offering exciting new ways to take your eyes and mind off the road. The video featured below will describe several of these new devices.
