Seriously? Did they even test every feature even with just a simple voice control by using "hey siri"? What a joke they made. This 'study' is more likely paid, besides why test it on mental people. Wouldn't they be day dreaming half the time because they would be distracting themselves anyway. This is what these claims used towards siri. What's next, mental people will find iphone distracting from classrooms?

You get a bribe for your jealousy spew like every samsheep. You should start a riot to make a cult in order to do any better for it to work.

What this study lacks, is that some people have a higher skill set then others. Example 100 people can play a video game, yet all get different scores, & level advancement. Also, there is a little common sense as well. In high speed and high traffic area, there should be zero distractions regardless if it's the radio or voice commands. I have no problem keeping control of my car using voice commands, or adjusting heat, radio etc. However, I don't do anything except pay attention to the road in danger zones. I save that for straight roads, with low traffic & before intersections.

Of course doing anything but paying exclusive attention to driving is a "distraction". More so when it requires physical interaction. Would be interesting to see a retooled version of this test with IOS8 and "Hey Siri", or even CarPlay when that becomes generally available.

This is one of those stupid studies that decided to bash on apple and put Siri at the top of the study. I find using my phone less distracting than some douche bag with a honda civic and a huge fart can with some Mexican driving it

iClarified, the Title bar follows me down while I read the article. This is very annoying because I have so little space to actually read the article.

it not about siri only, it is about everything can distract us while driving. i give a shit for siri, i don't use it, i don't think is useful for my life, but i can get easy distracted with a hot ass baby on the road :)

OMG! I just hit a Sheep using SIRI! Apple will be pissed off!

No offense to the testers in the video, but tried it myself, using siri in the phone while driving. True, there is some distraction, especially when thinking what to say, but not even close to a point where I'd miss a light or a stop sign...
