Abstract

Drivers are frequently observed interacting with in-car devices despite the well-documented dangers and (financial) penalties of such behavior. It is therefore useful to think about how to make such in-car multitasking situations safer. In this position paper we discuss how the consideration of “natural breakpoints” in tasks can be useful. We discuss the virtues of designing for such breakpoints, but also highlight limitations especially related to people’s awareness of their performance.
