Technology is supposed to set us free, make life easier for us, and ultimately led us to a futuristic lifestyle where there is no war, no need for money, no poverty, and no auto-related deaths. And, while that possibility is there in the long term, the introduction of new technologies is making us so dumb that it’s getting out of hand. First, let me touch base on the whole rear seat reminder situation. Now, I know this has been around for a while, with the 2016 GMC Acadia being one of the first and another 20 GM vehicles following shortly after. Nissan also has its “rear door alert” that ultimately saves the same purpose – “Hey, don’t forget you have a kid back here.” Seriously, though? Do you need to read that again? Who the hell really forgets their kid on accident? Is that really what the human species has been dumbed down to? Devolving to the point that we no longer have that basic instinct to protect our children at all costs? Come on, People – even some of the dumbest animals in the world have this natural instinct, and here we are at the top of the food chain leaving kids in hot cars to die. And, sadly, that’s not where the lack of attention span stops.
