Bizzare. I had no idea that it was such a problem. I don't like the idea of TV in the car. I love movies and NOT watching would be hard for me. Plus I like to see my surroundings. I loved "car games" as a kid, and I used to try to read every business sign untll I was actually a driver myself.

You know, if that woman had a DVD player in her car, her kid might not have been looking outside the window to see the real world :p :f: 8-! :5 :-x :d:

We were always told the way to avoid getting 'car sick' is to watch the view out the window. Reading in the car makes a lot of people car sick. What does watching TV in the car do??

Apparently it depends on what you are watching ;-)

Wow!

That is interesting.

It just shows that life keeps getting more and more complicated at a faster rate with each passing decade.

The older I get, the more I think we need a good civilization reset. You know, set the world back, technologically, a good 150 years. This brings out the latent Luddite in me, I guess.

Also, don't the police have more important things to worry about like murders and rapists and gang violence and poverty and homelessness, etc, etc, etc.

I remember when part of the excitement of travel was to view the scenery between the point of departure and the destination. Just another example of dumbing down behavior.

Unless I am going for a very long drive and I want to see the news or maybe some other short term entertainment.
( I would keep the glassess tinted ;-) )
But frankly whenever i buy my next big car/SUV, the DVD player and screen are already on the wishlist. There are many uses to it.
