(September 4 – 11)
Recently, a J.D. Power survey indicated a number of consumers were found to be turning off driver safety and assist systems because the technologies are “annoying and bothersome”. These systems include items such as lane-keeping and collision protection.
Some also said the technologies can come across as a “nagging parent and no one wants to be constantly told they are not driving correctly”.
While many like and utilize driver assist and safety systems, the concern is that enough people don’t which could hamper future development.
