Gizmodo:  Specialized DVR For Cars Could Make Teens Better Drivers

Spy-in-the-cab could improve teenage driving – tech – 08 November 2009 – New Scientist

Some of us had this discussion recently.  I posted a suggestion about something similar some time ago.  Looks like others are thinking about it, too.  But why only teens?  Cars will need full black boxes with 360° video coverage for delinquents of all ages to stop the psychopathic butchery of tens of thousands on U.S. roads annually.  We have become so desensitized to this staggering loss of life that people will probably stall any corrections with squabbling about “privacy”, and so on, but something has to be done.

Or we could start driving sanely, with greater concern for the welfare of others than for our own convenience and egotistical dominance. 

Try an experiment:  The next time you’re in the grocery store, and you’re ready to check out, don’t wait in line—just force your way to the front, and push any elderly people or preoccupied moms with coupons out of your way.  It’s your line, no waiting!  Who gave them the right to be in front of you?!

What would you say if you saw such behavior in public—stupid, inexcusable, should be arrested, or maybe you think nobody would actually act like that?  So why do you drive that way?
