The roads would be safer if cars could exchange information about traffic conditions and bad drivers. But are we ready to sacrifice privacy to save lives?
Has this ever happened to you? You're cruising down the highway, moving with the flow, when a lane-splitting motorcyclist suddenly zips past, nearly sideswiping you at 90 mph. Situations like these too often result in traffic accidents. And the daredevil cyclist isn't the only road hazard out there. We've all encountered the distracted texter, the inebriated weaver -- maybe even the wild-eyed suspect in a police car chase.
Wouldn't it be nice to get a heads-up when bad drivers are approaching? An early-warning system that gives you enough time to take defensive action?
