There are no end to naysayers to technology, the days of riding horses are not for this kid, give me a Mustang with 420 horses, mirrors, backup cameras, sensors, and...what the heck, throw in side cameras for giggles.
I have no problem with the gizmos. What I don't like is the people who use them to replace
driving skill rather than enhancing
it. For example, I do have the reverse sensors. They are quite useful to help judge very accurately how close you are getting to an object. I can also parallel park without aid--but those sensors allow me to get the car into tighter spots than I might otherwise attempt, and get it there quicker. Enhance the skill, not replace it.
