Mercedes has this campaign talking about how the car can sense when it’s getting close to something and alerts the driver. Ford has a new parking assistant so people don’t have to parallel park themselves anymore.
Congratulations to Ford and Mercedes for fostering the stupidity of our nation’s drivers. Just what we needed…people thinking they don’t have to actually pay attention while behind the wheel. Watch out kids! Don’t chase balls into the streets. We may as well get rid of streetlights since idiots will just assume the car will yield and/or stop itself.
Now we’re just waiting for Honda or Toyota to make a car that will drive itself and provide a pillow for a headrest. Then people will just fall asleep at the wheel on purpose.
Hide your kids. Hide your wife. Hide your pets. Hide everything. You’re better off living in the middle of nowhere so you’re less likely to come out of the shower to find a Ford Escape in your living room.
