Driver Alert Systems

Recently, I heard about the many new technological improvements scientists and engineers are rolling out to, basically, prevent stupid.

Most of them were really cool and I can't wait to see them in use.  One of them tickled me greatly, though, and it is called the 'Driver Alert System.'

In essence, this system monitors how many times you've swerved, even slightly, out of your lane.  It also monitors if you've made some really dumb decisions, like cutting off another car or taking a corner too swiftly.  After one too many fuck-ups, the system illuminates an animated cup of coffee and displays the words "time for a break."

Rotflmao! I love it!  While they have to keep it clean, what this program is basically saying is, "Hey! Jackass! Get Your Non-Driving Ass Off The Road Before You Kill Somebody!"

Isn't is sad that computers have to take over because we can no longer be trusted to do the job.  Pretty soon, cars will be driving themselves since we just can't seem to get it right.
