It's unfortunate that you incorrectly translated what I said into what
you wrote above. I believe that by your tone you are one of the many
that find the attention level required to control a vehicle too far
beyond your capabilities. Better take the bus, Dave. :^)
What you believe is totally WRONG. As far as the bus is concerned, I drive,
rather drove that vehicle for many thousands of miles, ergo I believe that
my attention level is quite sufficient to operate nearly any vehicle on the
road today, avoiding idiots that have their heads stuck in a cell phone or
texting to their friends instead of devoting the requisite attention to
vehicle operation. If you don't agree, then you had best be the one riding a
That is only your opinion and as such (while you are able to have your
opinion), it isn't based on any factual knowledge. A person with their
head held upright and their eyes moving horizontally is able to take in
more than a person who is constantly glancing away from the outside of
the vehicle to check on speed, rpm and other information that can be
displayed on the windshield. It's been proven over the years.
No, that has not been proven!!!! What has been proven is - that after a
period of TRAINING a person will do as you say. Unfortunately, a goodly
fraction of the vehicles on the road today are being operated by persons who
have NEVER been trained in such a manner...That was my original point.
You aren't very good at comprehending an obvious point. How long and how
much training do you think it takes to qualify a fighter pilot? If you think
you are so qualified, I'm glad you aren't driving up here in Alaska with me.
Brian don't be too harsh on Dave. Remember how bright Palin was in
her Couric interview? I can only assume Alaska has special needs
starting from the Govenor's office all the way down to the people.
The really sad thing is if people have to resort to name calling
showing how mature or bright they are, imagine who you could be
driving next to? That's a scary thought.
some folks -think- they can "multitask" behind the wheel and do it
safely,but it's only their imagination.They don't see how they affect the
traffic flow and others around them. It's narcisstic,or MFFY.
It's still better than them having their heads(and attention) down in the
instrument cluster.Fighter pilots learned that long ago.
you could put the HUD display off to one side,not directly in front of the
driver's forward view.
The biggest problem with drivers is that their minds are not on the subject
of DRIVING,but on other things.
To them,driving is the -secondary- task.
