RE: Ultrasonic parking aids ...
Has it really come to this? We are talking about parking a car, right?
To think, all this time I've
been getting by simply using sideview mirrors with no apparent side
effects. Now I can have my car
complain about my driving too!
A side note to this, I was relating the fun I was having in a rental
car a couple weeks ago that had a GPS setup that not only showed a map
but had a voice to tell me when to turn and the name of the road I was
to turn onto. Her response? GET ME ONE OF THOSE - NOW!
