Will social Media inside a car ever be safe ?

As Ford announced it’s integration of social media into it’s newer models Pandora a report has come out questioning just how safe it is to be connected in our cars?

It’s not hard to see why they might be questioning it either when we take into account that in 2008 an estimated 6,000 people were killed and 500,000 injured due to mobile phone related car accidents.

So will all this new technology that Ford and no doubt other car manufacturers adopt, bring a safe way to connect with our social media during driving? Ford believe that voice and steering wheel-controlled social applications could bring social media to the driver’s seat in a safe and effective way, but it’s hard to think how tweeting at the wheel won’t be a distraction and anyone who’s tried to change tracks via voice control on their iPhone will know just how reliable voice activated devices are!
