Express Your Driving Rage with the Drive-e-mocion
Just the other day I was pulling out of the train station in my RAV4 when all of a sudden, the cars in front of me were stopping short. Luckily, I was a good distance behind the car in front of me, but my eyes were glued to my rear view mirror as I watched this girl behind me in a black car riding on my tail. I knew she wasn’t going to stop in time and would rear-end me (which would have been the second time in three months), so preventing an unpleasant accident and assuring my safety, I made a quick decision to pull over to the shoulder.
That’s when she starts honking her horn like a mad woman. I’m thinking to myself, “Okay, I just saved you from damaging my car, your car, and the cars behind you, and you’re honking at ME? WTF?!?!” And you wanna know why cars were stopping so short? Because there was a tiny branch in the road–unbelieveable.As I preceded to the exit ramp, she takes off like a bat out of hell into the left lane, hopefully on her way to get a speeding ticket. If only I could have given her a piece of my mind!!! But if I had the Drive-e-mocion, I very well could have!!Developed by London-based AU-MY Limited, the Drive-e-mocion is “an electronic display that sticks to your back window; you operate it by remote control from the front seat.
It can display a smiley face or a frowning face, along with the messages ‘thank you’ and ‘back off.'” However, it only comes with four displays so far. Darn, I’ll have to wait for the customizable version. It sells for 9 pounds sterling, but it’s currently out of stock until the new, revamped model ships. Want to be notified when the new model is ready? Just go to the AU-MY site and e-mail them. I wonder though, would this kind of thing be legal to drive around with in the US?
