Predictive Forward Collision Warning System! (i.e., You Might Get In An Accident)

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”.

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.

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.
