Driving Experience Las Vegas Speedway


There is no doubt in my mind, based upon data and personal experience, that more than 70 hours per week of driving is dangerous. Period. Especially with piggy back rigs.

Check out the late Michael Chrichton's time-travel novel called "Timeline." The driving force behind the central idea was the hi-tech entrepreneur's belief that today's wealthy tourists want that "authentic experience." Hence,, his intention to re-create down to the last detail a 14th central French castle, moat, town, and all. It is not enough to see the ruins. They want the "real" experience. So, it seems. does Mr. Ellison, in addition to making L'anai self-sustaining.. The late playwright and director Moss Hart, reared in dire poverty, spent his later fortune so lavishly and profligately that a friend described it as "what God would have done if He had the money." There are echoes of that here...but people are themselves, not players in a visitor's "authentic experience."

I don't fly unless I absolutely have to (overseas). Amtrak or driving are preferable to the entire flying experience.

Sounds like a great idea to me. It's odd, isn't it, that in polls people say that texting while driving is, "'unacceptable and dangerous', and yet they do it anyway. They can't resist."

Well, not being able to "resist", is no more of a sorry excuse for texting-while-driving than it is for drinking or being drunk-while-driving. I read some years ago that texting, talking on the phone, and other tech distractions-while-driving now cause more fatal accidents per year on our roads than does drunk driving.

Would that be an argument for the defense attorney in a DUI case? "Judge, my client didn't mean any harm, he just 'can't resist' drinking alcohol and driving." I don't think so.

As far as the Google Smart Car goes, that sounds good too. Without a manual override, however, I doubt it will get any "traction", that being the word marketers like to employ. (Pun intended.)

As all sensible people know, the gauges and the readouts, as well as the rear view and side mirrors in an automobile, are located where they are for a reason. That reason being that in order to check them, the driver need take his eyes off of the road for barely a fraction of a second. Anyone who takes his eyes off the road for more than a fraction of a second while driving, for any reason, is not a sensible person.
