OMG! Safety devices that become harmful...

Recommended Posts

I'm sitting here working the forum and listening to the scanner of the local sheriff. About 2 miles from me a motorhome had a flat tire not a blow out but just a flat tire. The onboard computer shutdown the engine and left the motorhome stranded in a blind corner. The local sherif was calling for a tow and the owner must of a found a way to temporary disable the tire sensor to get off the road... They are now calling off the tow truck... I'm so glad I don't have all hese weird features on my truck... I use what called a tire pressure gauge and check my tire pressures often... In 24 years of driving I've only had a few flat tires... Mostly being off road...:rolleyes:

Yeah something like that I could see causing more of a safety concern than preventing one. If the driver is unable to move the vehicle off a roadway they are very likely to be in an accident.My wifes Ford Focus has a seat belt alarm that is so distracting that I could easily see it causing an accident. I know I put up with it for a week before the dealership fixed it.

Thats just stupid! I would be having a serious case of the arse with whoever designed that!Rims are cheap, a "safety" feature like that could cost lives.
