Mobile mapping while driving: Is it risky?

CNN writes: "The dangers of texting while driving were clarified in a March report from the National Safety Council, "Understanding the Distracted Brain." This report focused on how the dangers of using hands-free phones while driving are often underestimated, but it also got a lot of attention for saying that 14 percent of Americans admitted to texting while driving (a significantly lower figure than the more recent Telenav survey found).

But what about mobile maps?

Neither research effort addressed a driving hazard I've seen surprisingly often: Drivers consulting maps on their cell phones while driving."

The story is too old to be commented.
