GPS units may cause accidents through distraction but at least one Sydney taxi driver clearly believes that there’s no such thing as too much technology in-car. By our count there’s at least ten devices surrounding the driver. Is that even legal?
This shot was sent through to us yesterday of a rather over-equipped taxi currently on Sydney’s roads. Now, I’m as big a booster of the use of gadgets in everyday life as anyone, but even I’d be nervous being in a cab where the driver had this many sources of distraction. There’s at least two ATMs, the cab booking computer, GPS and in car DVD and TV (two screens), phone and laptop, all running at the same time.
Would you get into this cab? I mean, I guess the odds are good you probably wouldn’t get lost on your way to the crash…
