    Cue up the right wing outrage. My left wing self thinks this is a great idea. I suspect most of us have backed into something over the course of time.

    Your usual bull ****. I am a right winger and have one in my wifes car and we both love it......Thinking about getting one in my truck to.

    No you're not, as usual. When you are right it is seldom, you're just a wisecracker at heart. I am for the idea, which makes you wrong. Now run along.

    No, my car doesn't have that. The only other fancy things it has is auto-adjustable seats to two drivers, heated seats, radar on all four corners, and GPS. The new ones park themselves.
    Yeah, I've done that. Nice hing about being in my business is you get to drive a lot of different cars. The self parking thing is creeepyy.

    What's it cost for a camera & monitor made in China? fifty cents?

    I'm considering an aftermarket one for my cargo van, eBay has them for around 30 bucks.

    It's just a little extra cushion of safety, drivers really need to know what's behind them when backing up, if you hit a car with a suv, a van or a pickup truck, that's easily a couple thousand dollars in potential damage.

    To be fair, you didn't get a whole lot of right wing outrage. Regardless of political perspective, I think most people recognize that all vehicles have a blind spot in the back which has gotten worse as cars have gotten bigger. Add to that the negligible production cost (only a couple of dollars), and it's a no brainer.

    I'm sure there would be some sort of outcry if Obama was involved, but there's no sense looking for outrage where none exists.

    Not even in connection with getting bigger.

    Among the rental cars that I have driven in the past few years, with ridiculously huge blind spots, were a Toyota Yaris and a Ford Fiesta, both subcompacts, much smaller than my Contour. There is some element of very, very bad design, that seems to be creeping into all contemporary cars, of all makes, all sizes, and all styles, that is creating these very bad blind spots that have no good reason to exist.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    Once again. Read the thread. There are many righties that are not pleased for the predictable reasons. Right as rain. You embarrassed yourself again.

    Or maybe I did and didn't find it too be all that significant.
