Survey: GPS less distracting than talking or texting

by GPS4US 2014-09-02 11:09

Drivers in the northwest say using GPS during driving is safer than talking on the phone or texting.

Pemco Insurance surveyed 1,200 people in Washington and Oregon, and 47 percent have no issues with
using their GPS while their driving, which is good, ‘cause that’s kind of what having a GPS unit in
your car is for.

That’s pretty much common wisdom these days. So perhaps the more entertaining part of the pole is how
it completely reinforces driving stereotypes about gender.

For instance:
•    36 percent of men said they are “exceptionally good” with directions. (Hate to break it to you
guys, but if you’re exceptionally good with directions, it’s probably   probably because of that new nuvi you picked up.)

•    Men wanted directions described by street names, while women wanted landmarks (Just go to that gas
station, take a left and do down until you see that shoe store. Then go straight until you hit the guy
twirling the sign on the corner, then go two more driveways and there it is!)
•    65 percent of men said they don’t mind asking for directions. We suspect 60 percent of men lied in
this survey.
