A study released by a British auto safety group this week reveals that cars equipped with digital entertainment systems are endangering motorists and other drivers they share the roads with.

Motorists using Apple CarPlay or Android Auto while they drive were found to display slower reaction times to obstacles in the road and to veer out of lanes while engaging with music app controls, according to the study.

More shocking, researchers found response times for drivers distracted by music apps were nearly five times longer than for drivers who test at the permitted limit for alcohol consumption (0.08 percent) and nearly three times longer than for cannabis smokers.
