Do you have rumble strips in America? I was once on a school trip (no not as a pupil, I was the school computer technician) and the bus driver kept nodding off. The bus would veer onto the rumble strip and make a noise, which woke him up. It was a 7 hour overnight drive to an amusement park.
Love is complicated machinery.
But sometimes all you need is a good screw to fix it.
I was working summers as a toll collector and had just finished a double
shift ending at 7 am Sunday morning. Bump of wheel hitting edge of road
woke me up. Also went to church before going home and fell asleep there.
I hear new EyeSight system such as available at Subaru may be mandated
in the future:
I did not get it on my new Subaru but understand they see a 60% accident
reduction in models that have it.
On my car it is called "Lane Keep Assist". It gives a visual warning,
vibrates the steering wheel and can nudge the wheel back to the lane.
Auto braking is part of it. I've used it as part of the adaptive cruise
control, but I hope to never try it for an emergency stop. It was agreed
by 20+ car makers to make it standard by the 2022 models.
Backup cameras will be mandatory on 2018 models. I've had it on my last
two cars and would not buy a car without it.
Why do you need more than one? Or do you mean reverse?
Don't you know what a mirror is for?
Today's woman puts on wigs, fake eyelashes, false fingernails, sixteen pounds of assorted make-up/shadows/blushes/creams, living bras, various pads that would make a linebacker envious, has implants and assorted other surgeries, then complains that she cannot find a "real" man.
Reverse. Far superior to mirrors as you eliminate the blind spot.
People, mostly kids, are killed by backing cars every year. It is
impossible to see the are below the trunk close to the car.
Backovers kill about 300 people every year because they were not visible
in the mirror. Sadly, many are kids killed by their parents.
That aside, backing is just easier as you can see exactly where you are
backing to another car or barrier.
Kids stupid enough not to move when a car starts up need removing from the gene pool. Even my cats get out of the way!
People who have problems with blind spots are just shit at driving. It's not a blind spot if you're moving, as the spot moves, so your brain should be able to fill in the gaps. Besides, with 6 windows and three mirrors, you can see everywhere you need to.
It said, "Insert disk #3," but only two will fit!
In the 50 plus years I've been on Earth, I
only know of <one> backover. And the idiot
driver was acting angry, and the nitwit
who got over'd was a damn fool to have
stepped behind an angry driver. I never
would have stepped behind that driver.
Yes, I'm eye witness.
Nope, not life threatening, but it does show the even YOU can't see
everything behind your car in your rear view mirrors.
I find the backup camera really comes in handy when backing up to a wall
or other vehicles in a parking lot.
I suppose some folks may consider you to be the "Devil's Advocate", but
most of the things you post make you look like an idiot to me.
Yes, but people have to actually use the camera. Do they also have
"radar" to actually see something in the way? I've always been extra
careful about keeping little kids clear when backing up.
Dogs are bad too. I've got one that will run right under the tires
when my wife enters the driveway. A really stupid dog.
