During a recent period of stop and go traffic in San Francisco’s Broadway Tunnel, I counted seven straight cars in which the driver was looking down at a phone. That number didn’t surprise me (especially since my own eyes were on other cars instead of the road). We constantly see people on their phones while driving. So what do we do when we find that technology is making life too complicated? We add more technology. But will these hands-free technologies really make us any safer? According to Newshour, a new report found that talking, texting and adjusting music might be even more distracting if you’re not using your hands.

+ ArsTechnica: Driving with voice-activated infotainment is really distracting. (For example, “two of the study participants rear-ended another car while using Siri.”)
