Lexus, great! I should have been a helo pilot.

And a car door system that will keep the damn door open on a hill so I can get out w/o crushing my leg/body. Get'n old.
This has been done at DARPA...DVC

Welcome! I remember my first time. I lurked awhile too before posting too. I was a bit afraid of forums (stranger danger LOL) So, Is lurking your full time job? What do you do for a living?

It's a great group and not near as scary as I thought! Hope to see more of ya!

Re: What Do You Do for a Living?

Utilities Engineer in for a big corp for now but it is getting a little stale. Hopefully self employed in a few years in the Northeast but not sure at what. Any ideas that will give me income and some time to sail?

My Honda Accord has this as well. I'm sure the system can be adapted to any car, but is hard to implement without involving the manufacturer, IMO.

BTW, I work as an IT Consultant. Running my tiny IT company.

Re: What Do You Do for a Living?

Think if those options are needed probably shouldn't be driving anyways. I call it the "drunk and impaired" option. Unless handicapped, elderly or a frequent drunk driver I would never opt in for the options. Should give higher level of acceptable blood alcohol if you have these options. They even have break for you, just incase you passed out.
