Distracting in-car navigation systems

In-car navigation systems can be distracting (1) Well, duh. (2) The article provides no details. This was probably an online poll conducted by YouGov by Privilege Insurance, a UK company. It’s hard to say whether there’s any chance of the survey being accurate, since no details are given in the Computerworld story (which might just be a Reuters reprint), and the study isn’t mentioned, as far as I can tell, on Priviledge’s website. At least, I suppose, they are taking seriously the problem of driver distraction. Other surveys looked at roadside distractions (bad!) and singing in the car (good!).
