No good can come of this.

Irasshimase!
 
2006-09-16 02:02:39 AM  
One step closer to my dream of a magic button on the dash that evaporates cars driven by people who piss me off. w00t!

Why do I need a Japanese to tell me that my middle finger is a wireless message ?
 
2006-09-16 02:04:21 AM  
I've been waiting YEARS for this. Now I can tell others to gtf off the phone & watch the damn road.

I'd say "DIAF, motherfarking tailgater".
 
2006-09-16 02:15:31 AM  
"Car approaching from left" and "School ahead. Watch your speed," are two voice messages which drivers will receive through the system which uses information obtained from nearby vehicles and roadside optical beacons.

Oooh, I can't wait for the Detroit version.

"Yo, that cop be followin' you."

"That muthaf***a just cut you off! I say we go kick is ass!"
 
2006-09-16 02:16:57 AM  
What's with all the car-related greenlights?
 
2006-09-16 02:18:21 AM  
This will take road rage to new heights. WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG?
 
2006-09-16 02:18:35 AM  
I hope its voice messaging. I couldnt imagine texting and driving.
 
2006-09-16 02:23:29 AM  
I am disrespectful to tailgaters. Can not you see I am serious?

In communist China, car drives you!
 
2006-09-16 02:27:00 AM  
^^except i meant to say 'japan' instead of china. oops.

"Hey baby, nice headlights"
 
2006-09-16 02:30:38 AM  
Why wont the world listen to me. I've been saying the following for years.

A: phone company ties license plates to cell phone numbers
B: camera phones has program which takes photos and finds license plate number. then calls the phone company.

I can see how this would so not work in manhattan...

"car aproaching left, right, in front of you, behind you, ahead of you, bus in front of you, bus behind you, bus cutting you off, taxi cab ahead of you, cutting you off, skimming the paint off your car, to your left, and right..."


yeah....no thanks.

Can't wait for some shi**y little 13 year old in his mom's Escalade to hack my car's lights into a disco show


Love the Simpsons quote, Mugato
 
2006-09-16 02:48:23 AM  
Whatever happened to those Japanese cars that showed the emotion of the driver? Like if you were pissed off, the headlights would turn red and the bumper/grill thing would turn into a frown?
 
2006-09-16 03:14:03 AM  
first message from my car will undoubtly be:

Get the fark out of the farking left lane you slow driving mother farker piece of shiat . 65mph is for weenies in the right lane. i wanna get some where today farktard.
 
2006-09-16 03:40:49 AM  
No voting?
 
2006-09-16 03:43:20 AM  
First 1000 messages will resemble: "Oh, you got the mauve interior, how do you like yours? Mines a piece of shiat."
 
2006-09-16 03:46:42 AM  
Ooh. They're talking about making it able to calculate a GPS route that takes traffic into account. Spiffy.
 
2006-09-16 04:22:46 AM  
Veale728: And i would say "Speed up grandma!"
 
2006-09-16 04:26:34 AM  
They need to name them all KITT & put a flashy red light in the grill.

/"I'll take the Hasselhoff package, please."
 
2006-09-16 04:50:37 AM  
I think I'll be using this to hit on hotties when I am stuck in traffic.
 
2006-09-16 05:33:19 AM  
How can someone forget to turn off their blinker? Don't all cars make a pretty obvious clicking noise while it's on?

I wonder if it ask, "how much for your daughter?"
 
2006-09-16 06:57:21 AM  
except nissan is owned by renault, which is of course french. puts a whole new spin on things.

/pronounced ren-O, like steve-O, NOT renalt/salt
//while i was typing this, the hasselhoff thing was in my screen, and for some reason, im really turned on.

And a flashing light thingee on the dashboard last time I checked.

I'd send "It's a MERGE lane idiot!"

/feel better now
 
2006-09-16 07:48:20 AM  
Some blinkers click too quietly to hear if the radio's on. It happens.

If I'm passing, I pull in front of the guy and then turn mine on and leave it there. If he's smart, he'll check his own and shut it off.
 
2006-09-16 08:19:12 AM  
That would be great. "Step on the mother-farking gas! It's the pedal on the right!"
 
2006-09-16 08:29:57 AM  
"Warning Cellphone user coming up fast behind. Reccomendation: Pull over and wait for passage"
 
2006-09-16 08:49:06 AM  
Great, one more way for Bush & Co. to keep track of us. If our cars are constantly broadcasting stuff, other people can track them.

It's the same as with OnStar or GPS.
 
2006-09-16 08:49:19 AM  
Im all for "left blinker has been on for 10 minutes jackass" but, I dont like how it's going to tell you if someones approaching on your left or right or anything outside the vehicle. Sooner or later by the sheer mathmatics of it. It's going to fail. Then some moron will merge into my drivers seat at 70 MPH. If drivers can't even be bothered/remember to check their blind spots. They shoulden't be driving.
 
2006-09-16 09:14:27 AM  
Hello people? This system will NOT allow drivers to send messages to other drivers. Pay attention!
 
2006-09-16 09:14:37 AM  
"Get out of the left lane, moran"
 
2006-09-16 09:23:11 AM  
Excerent!! Even more shiat in cars to distract jackasses who aren't already distracted enough by their cell phones, DVD systems, sex toys, etc.....

/Loves me some 10-under-driving-lane-weaving arseholes

Quick, look behind you!!

They have some great medication for paranoia. Please look into it.

I must confess that I leave the stupid thing on sometimes. But, my 2003 Olds gives a warning sound when I do. Nice little invention.

Holy shiat, that's awesome. Does anyone (if anyone is still reading this thread) have linkage to that?
 
2006-09-16 09:59:55 AM  
I want the "Get the fark out of the left lane you STUPID Ohio driver!" message.
/everyone in Ohio should just die or learn how to drive!
 
2006-09-16 10:42:18 AM  
I can't buy it, my wife would never want to compete with a machine to tell me how to drive.
 
2006-09-16 11:46:14 AM  
I never thought I'd see the day when I could send a driver a message that reads: "I... can't drive... FIFTY-FIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIVE!"
 
2006-09-16 12:16:48 PM  
my first message would undoubtedly be "get off my ass rooster78, i'm doing 65 in the passing lane, actually passing people, so get away from me."
 
2006-09-16 01:07:17 PM  
"You drive like old people fark. Slow and sloppy"

/Carlin
 
2006-09-16 11:30:08 PM  
Gerrr, I hate people who stay in the left lane going 65mph when there is no traffic. I saw a cop fly up to a guys butt that was doing this shiat. He then followed the guy for like 4 miles ON HIS ASS, and this dipshiat STILL did not move. HOW farkING STUPID ARE YOU PEOPLE!

/And turn off your damn blinker.
