Are Smart Cars Really Smart or Are They Making You Dumb?
I love my new car. Her name is Ruby. I can answer the phone, listen to iTunes, tilt the seats, warm my rear end, open the windows and the sunroof, call for help, find out if my tires need air and so much else, all at the mere click of a button. I don’t even need to plug my phone in because it’s instantly connected to my car system with Blue Tooth. I don’t even need to take my hands off the steering wheel in order to answer the phone. The ultimate in hands-free mobile phone communication. Oh yeah, and she’s a joy to drive.
I'm Not 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.
I don’t use a Blue Tooth headset despite the fact that I have a level 4 Shield. The reason is simple, I still don’t want those EMF waves going straight to my brain and although I know the Shield protects me, why make it work that hard, and why take any chance at all? And yet, here I am in a car that is using Blue Tooth technology and WiFi to connect to my phone for calls and play music and audio books, the mirror has three different settings, one calls for help, the other communicates information about the condition and upkeep of my car, and the third one, I have absolutely no idea what it does, but they all use WiFi to alert someone to something.
Is the WiFi in my car as strong as the WiFi everywhere else? I’m not sure and haven’t bothered to get a gauss meter. What I do know for sure is that all this EMF and WiFi radiation is contained in this little tiny space, bombarding my body the entire time I’m in the car. I have my Shield on and feel pretty secure that it’s not putting me at risk. However, I am seriously considering adding a room Shield as a dangle on my mirror.
Why? The amount of EMF I am exposed to daily keeps increasing, new cell towers go up, we keep somehow acquiring more and more devices that use Blue Tooth or wireless technology. Plus I’m in the DC area and I’m in traffic with millions of other cars who also have cellphones, WiFi, etc. There’s even talk of a city-wide WiFi system going in soon. Smart Meters haven’t come to our neighborhood yet, but that’s only a matter of time. Although I will refuse to have one on our house, there are still the WiFi signals that would be coming from the other 20 meters that would be closest to us in this town-house complex. In short, we’re bombarded and that’s increasing steadily.
If you are driving a Hybrid your exposure to EMF radiation could be huge. Just think about it, you are driving in a generator of sorts that has to be putting off a lot of electromagnetic radiation.
Another possible issue I see with our new Smart Cars, Smart Phones, Smart “Alecs” on the road.
I just got home from driving nearly 2 hours in traffic and felt lucky to get home safely. There were cars going extremely fast, while others were wandering into other lanes, driving extremely slow, seeming to not know where they are going, unaware there are other cars on the road, and just a load of unsafe driving habits. I looked as I passed each of these cars, and less than half the people were holding phones to their ears or texting. So what about the other half?
It seems to me that more and more people are driving like space cadets, not in their bodies, not aware that there are other people on the road, in short, totally distracted.
What is going on?
It wasn’t a full moon, traffic wasn’t overly heavy, at least for the DC area. In many areas of the country it would be called congested, but here as long as traffic is moving at or around the speed limit, that’s not a problem. In fact, in addition to noticing if they are using their mobile phones, I’ve taken that a step further and briefly “tuned-in” to their energy and a good share of the erratic drivers don’t seem to be in their bodies at all! What that means is they are not focused or paying much attention to where they are or what they are doing, and may not even realize it. That brings me to my question.
One of the effects I notice from WiFi when I’m not wearing my Shield is that I feel less focused. This makes me wonder. In addition to the fact that people are texting or holding a phone to their ear and driving, is it possible that the Blue Tooth technology in cars is one of the reasons people seem to be driving so erratically? I swear there are days that a lot of people don’t even seem to realize there are other cars on the road. If they are experiencing the effects of EMF radiation, that could explain some of the crazy driving.
I’m not taking any chances when I’m driving, I want to be my most focused when I’m on the road. I suggest that you wear you Shield and depending on how much time you spend in your car, you may want to consider getting a Room Shield for your car.
- Drive Safely this Summer:
- Don’t Text.
- Don’t hold your phone and talk.
- Wear your Shield
- If you’re going on vacation, take the Room Shield out of your Living Room and put in in your car; or order your car her very own Room Shield - keep the family protected and possibly even calmer and more pleasant. (That could be the subject of yet another post so stay tuned.)
