Entertaining children with movies can prevent driver-distraction crashes
Irvine, CA – September 07, 2011 – Studies indicate that young children are one of the leading causes of driver-distraction crashes because they require the driver’s attention. Visually, drivers may take their eyes off the road to tend to a child’s need. Manually, they may take their hands off the wheel to pick up a dropped toy, book, bottle, pacifier, etc. Cognitively, they may lose focus when hearing a child scream or cry. In fact, kids can be more distracting than texting and driving. However, Shawn Fry, a father and owner of Systems by Synful, recommends keeping kids entertained, such as with movies, while driving in order to prevent distractions and consequent crashes.
Fry explains that a major component to safe driving is reducing and preferably eliminating distractions. Therefore, he acclaims keeping kids entertained. And unlike toys and books that can easily drop or cause fights over with siblings, movies are played in a DVD player, thus aren’t dropped, and can be set up to play different movies on different screens, catering to different preferences.
Fry further explains that DVD systems have come a long way. Their prices have dropped. Space intrusion has reduced with the creation of headrest monitors. And such features as a built-in Bluetooth to allow hands-free driving and rear-view camera inputs to reduce blind spots when backing out have been added. He recommends that those considering installing a DVD system in their vehicles should do their homework first. Research and have an open conversation with dealers and installers regarding budget and needs. Drivers should also only purchase and have players installed from an authorized dealer and installer to assure product quality and warranty.
