Everyday Objects and heisenberg's equation

Why exactly can't heisenberg's principle be applied to everyday objects?

The uncertainty of larger objects is harder to determine because they are easier to observe. Knowing how fast a car is going doesn't affect our knowledge of where it is located, because cars are much bigger than atoms, and are therefore easier to observe.

With large everyday objects we can measure momentum and position with great precision, so the resulting uncertainty is negligible.
