Here’s the thing. Engineers have sweated the details to get you a rear view mirror that matches your car, so maybe it’s not the smartest thing to slap on an oversized rear view mirror inside of your ride. You think?
The people with these driving aids must spend too much time looking backwards because they tend not to look forward. So, let’s say the driver of one of these cars wants to go right at an intersection. He or she will slowly make the turn without stopping irrespective of the presence of pedestrians or traffic controls.
Red light, yellow light, green light, stop sign – none of that matters to these people who drive as if they are the last on Earth, as if they were Charlton Heston in The Omega Man.
