False Sense of Security: Car Sensors

Personal Add comments

Progress. You back up the car and it beeps if anything is close. It can sound annoying, but hopefully it stops people running over people behind them.

The problem is that it gives you a false sense of security. I now know a handful of people who have all done the same thing:

Whenever I reverse out of my garage, the car beeps as it is close to the side of the garage. Yesterday, when I reversed out, it beeped, and then I hit a car that was parked behind me.

I need to keep reminding myself to not assume what the beeping is in reference too, else I will get into trouble too :)

    Here’s another one: the security keypad for the door at the day care center. The idea is only people who know the code can enter while Mr. GiveMeYourChildSoICanGetATwoMillionDollarRansom sees the keypad and says, “Aww shucks! The door is secured and I don’t have the pass-code! Let me go to another daycare that doesn’t use keypads!” The sad reality is another instance where “locks keep out honest people”.
