IDK, man. The brake lights on Priuses work without any effort on behalf of today’s overtaxed drivers, so why don’t the headlights and taillights work like automatically? I mean the phone(s) inside this ride certainly know when it’s nighttime, so why not the much more expensive car as well?

What’s that, you don’t want Toyota to miss out on “upselling” the “luxury” of automatic headlights?

OK fine. But Prius drivers already need extra help, right? And what with the Lyft and the UBER these days, all those drivers from Modesto and whatnot, they need help too.

Right?

What do you think the report rate is for people who’ve lost a bunch of windows the past several years? I think it’s not high. So when the media / popo report on a reduction of car break-ins, I think they should take pains to specify it’s the reported rate what’s fallen.

Anyway, my advice would be to leave your glove box and consoles and coin trays open at night…

Long time ago I talked with an IT manager at the state DMV – he said they had to make sure that three-letter combinations like S-E-X and A-S-S couldn’t ever be used on a CA license plate. But I guess 666, the number of the beast, is A-OK? And he was like, sure, no prob. So On It Goes
