The Future of Cars

The Insurance Journal reports on the Top 10 Car Technologies for Mature Drivers.

The Insurance Journal reports on the Top 10 Car Technologies for Mature Drivers. While all of these features seem helpful, we can forget about going for a nice peaceful drive.  Imagine when you’re driving down a dark narrow road and your smart headlights adjust so that you can see the road better, great right? However, coming down the road on the other side is another driver driving with his smart headlights that automatically adjust so that he can see. See the problem? Each car is adjusting for their driver but not for the environment. Both drivers are currently blinded until they pass each other, which is not an improvement from current driving conditions.

Reverse monitoring sounds like a great improvement especially for those who aren’t great at backing up. However, lane departure warnings sound like they would be problematic. If you got a voice warning or a beeping noise every time you departed a lane you might experience a very disruptive car ride. These warnings would cause more harm than good by increasing distractions within your car.

What do you think about these improvements for mature drivers?
