Taking Aim At Distracted Drivers

Taking Aim At Distracted Drivers

Distracted drivers are the second most common cause of accidents in Michigan. Even while driving sixty miles an hour on the highways people will dig their phone from their pocket to answer a text. Glancing away from the road for even a second can have tragic consequences, both for the driver and their community. That’s why Heidebreicht is proud to offer a range of vehicles with cutting-edge communications technology designed to keep drivers watching the road, not their phones. 

Voice commands have been around for a while, but only in the past few years has the technology become reliable enough to be useful in a road environment. Now that it is, it’s opened up a whole new world of safety features. The Chevy  MyLink in our Malibu connects to Bluetooth-enabled, letting you play music and make phone calls using the large touchscreen in your Chevy.

There are times, though, when even one hand off the wheel is more risk than adventure. That’s why most smartphones can be controlled with buttons conveniently located on the steering wheel of the Silverado and other models. You can scroll through a playlist without even glancing down.

Select Chevy models, like the Equinox, are compatible with the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto apps. Using these programs makes communication entirely hands-free, since the virtual assistant can read your texts and send replies using only voice commands.
With all the safety features available, there’s no excuse for reading emails on the roads. Join Chevy and say no to distracted driving.
