Has technology changed the way we drive?

Technology has transformed driving, especially in terms of navigation. It was only two decades ago when sat-navs were a luxury item, but now they’re commonplace. People rely on sat-navs so much that they wouldn’t even consider going on a long distance drive without one. Back in the day, it was a case of using maps and learning the route before you left, whilst memorising or taking note of road names. When was the last time you decided to navigate to a location by a printed map rather than sat-nav or mobile phone? Probably a very long time, and that’s completely understandable because the technology is quite brilliant. We no longer have to worry about getting lost, whilst we can also keep track of speed cameras too. It’s hard to fault the technology and how far we’ve come, however, it’s certainly true that we rely a bit too much on this new technology now.
