I saw this commercial, the other day
– a car that can, somehow, sense when there is a potential accident, several cars ahead. When this happens, a warning sound alerts the driver.
This made me laugh out loud (i.e. lol).
I live in the Northern Virginia/Washington D.C. area (yes, I am admitting to that, despite, the mess of our government), which is frequently recognized on top ten lists of “places with the worst traffic”.
I can kind of see what their thought process was, because sure it would be great if we could remove the threat of car accidents. But that’s just the thing, it’s an accident. A person doesn’t just get into their car every morning and think “hey I’m going to have a car accident today”.
Accidents suck and what people really need to do is be more vigilant and pay attention on the road. Sure mistakes will happen, but if you are constantly paying attention and driving carefully then it is less likely that an accident will happen.
Just watch out for other drivers though, they are the people who can’t drive properly. But don’t worry though, if you do get into an accident, then you can easily get some compensation for it by using a law firm like lamber goodnow. So at least it’s not the end of the world.
I’m not sure how good this car would be at sensing actual potential accidents though…
Can you imagine, I thought to myself,
how many times . . . driving down the beltway . . . . . . . . . .that alert sound would go off??
Beep . . . beep . . . . . . beep . . . beep . . . beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep!!!
Not to mention, apparently when this happens, pressure is automatically applied to the brake pedal.
Can you say “repetitive whiplash” ???
The visual is almost too much for me to handle.
I can already see people getting a Personal Injury Lawyer to help compensate them for their whiplash!
There is the option
of turning this wonderful accessory off.
Those with a PhD and the ability to understand the driver’s manual, may be able to figure it out.
