Texting while driving

Bloomberg:

The data support the generally-accepted wisdom that despite laws, penalties and reminders of the hazards of cell phone distractions while behind the wheel, drivers continue to put themselves and others on America’s roads in grave danger.

Do the world a favor. Grab a nearby friend or family member and show them how to turn on Do Not Disturb while driving settings for iOS or Android. Both operating systems have very good features around this now. There is no excuse at all not to have this on by default at this point.

Spread the word. It saves lives. It could save a life today.

Self-driving car accidents (because, humans)

Ryan Beene for The Seattle Times:

What they’ve found is that while the public may most fear a marauding vehicle without a driver behind the wheel, the reality is that the vehicles are overly cautious. They creep out from stop signs after coming to a complete stop and mostly obey the letter of the law — unlike humans.

So bots drive too well. Go figure.

Humans are terrible drivers. This middle phase of some driverless and some human drivers on the road can’t end soon enough.

On a short drive I talk about an annoying habit that I have.
