I think it was pretty cool.arildno said:So what?
It is just another dumb car. BORING!
HEY!!! :grumpy: I need at least three car lengths of open curb to paralllel park. I failed parallel parking when I took my driving test, but I wore a short skirt.Moonbear said:It needs 2 ft of space on both ends...if you can't parallel park yourself in a space a full 4 ft longer than the car, you don't belong on the road.
Cyclovenom said:Hahaha, the old short skirt trick, huh evo? :tongue2:
Well, i wouldn't mind if my automobile will park by itself, it's too big and sometimes i get tired of going back and forth to get out of the parking lot!.
I've heard this a lot, I really dont see why they dont make you, considering how hard it is to get good at. I guess they make you back in thats all. No more backing up for 20 feet and hitting the line equals a fail.moose said:^Genius. I laughed when I read that comment.
EDIT: I learned how to parallel park perfectly, and was damn good at it. Then come test day, they don't make me parallel park... wth?

Short Range Automotive Radar Frequency Allocation
its a 24GHZ radar that detects everything in its path, stopping if there should be a chance of colliding with anything and that you wouldn't stop yourself.
Also braking much smoother then a normal person as it calculates the distance and speed.
Currently they're also working on a 79GHZ.
so now we just need the gps to guide the car around right ? :D
Especially when it brakes for the tree branch you would have chosen to run over rather than get rear-ended by the tractor trailer following too close. Sometimes it's safer to risk a bit of body damage to the car from something small than slam on the brakes and get hit by something bigger.edward said:But you have to hope the car behind you has the same equipment.
