“I have a video I want you to watch, and no matter what, I need you to stay focused. Don’t take your eyes off the screen,” starts the Chevy video “Eyes On The Road,” posted to the Chevrolet YouTube channel by Chevrolet Films.
In a room with a video screen, several test-participants, and a proctor—who gave the aforementioned instructions—a video commences simulating the view one would see during a driving experience with a road and trees passing by.
All test-participants are able to keep their eyes successfully on the screen.
Now cue the distractions.
A repairman enters to noisily ‘fix’ an exit sign causing two people look over. Adorable barking puppies come in and one lady bends over to pet them.
A Steven Tyler look-alike rocker, zombies who have no regard for personal space, dancing “firefighters,” and hard-core wrestlers breaking through a wall proceed to enter the room, contending for the attention meant to go to the “road.”
“It’s hard to stay focused,” says the proctor, “but there are other things that steal our focus, like the cell phone. But what if at the touch of a button, your car could send a response?”
Meet the 2015 Chevy Cruz, Chevrolet’s answer for distraction-free driving in which drivers are able to send preset responses through the in-dash screen with the touch of a button, enabling their eyes to remain on the road.
So be sure to visit Bradshaw Automotive, and keep your “Eyes on the Road” in one of our Chevy offerings!
