Interesting article regarding driver assist tech *LINK*

It's an interesting article on the effects of crap like lane position sensors and all the other skill substitute stuff.

An alarming stat from early in the article, "U.S. roadway deaths jumped 14 per cent over the last two years, with more than 40,000 people dying in crashes in 2016. While speeding and more congested roadways bear some of the blame, distraction is another key culprit."

By distraction, they obviously mean texting etc., but it makes me wonder about the wisdom of the displaying of data on the face shield of a helmet or the windshield of a car.

It may look cool in a movie but probably not so much as you're unexpectedly rag dolling over the car that stopped suddenly in front of you, which you didn't notice because you were marvelling at all the info your display is giving you.
