Apple CarPlay and Android Auto impair driving more than alcohol, research finds

Using a car's Apple CarPlay or Android Auto system while behind the wheel can impair a driver's reaction time more than alcohol and cannabis use, or texting while driving, new research out of the UK has found. In fact, drivers using these systems were found to take their eyes off the road for up to 16 seconds, while the time they took to react to an stimulus on the road ahead was slowed by up to 50 per cent.
