The Latest and Greatest? Car Technologies
If you have purchased a car anytime in the last few years, it probably comes with some version of emergency assistance if you push an emergency button. Take a look and see if it’s in your car (it’s using on the mirror or dash). If so you have a smart car.

But I’m telling you this to brag about my car or get you to go buy one, I am sharing in hopes that you’ll think differently about your time in the car.
