Living in California, I know full well that the Prius should be the state car, if there was such a thing. I can't tell you the number of times (has to be in the thousands) I've been cut off, nearly run over, sideswiped (they also use their phones to chat and text despite the ban on it) on side streets, city streets, freeways and even country roads. Lest anyone think I hold a grudge against Prius drivers, I don't. BMW drivers are even more rude -- and more aggressive.

Richard, thanks for reporting on these three safety technologies from Volvo. I'd certainly want them on my car. Let's hope they help revive the automaker's sales.

Just curious, Chfhelin, did you drive with other teens on board? Or did your Dad clamp down and issue restrictions? When I was growing up, I was lucky to get any time behind the wheel of the family sedan. My parents were ultra-conservative. Either that or they just didn't want me behind the wheel, my straight-A's in school notwithstanding.

Interesting comment, Cfthelin. But, wouldn't that cut down on the driver's rear visibility? Also, what if the child decided chewing on Styrofoam was a good idea? Your suggestion gave me a laugh, anyway. Thanks.

Commented On: Ram Is The Only Auto Brand To Create A Top-Ten Super Bowl Ad

I absolutely loved the Ram SuperBowl spot. When I lived in Chicago, we always listened to Paul Harvey on the radio, usually when we were on the road to Lake Geneva or downtown or out and about elsewhere in the Illinois-Wisconsin-Minnesota countryside. Ram is to be commended for its creativity, appeal to our patriotism and work ethic and all-around good citizenship. This is an ad I'll never get tired of seeing. Bravo, Ram!

Bobcat, thanks for the compliment. Now for your question. I've passed along your comments to the folks who have responsibility for the website, but haven't heard back about the "print button" suggestion. You can, however, use your cursor and mouse button to highlight the areas of text you want, then copy and paste it to a word document. It's not elegant, but it does work. Anyway, thanks for sharing your thoughts and keep reading The Car Connection.

Thanks for bringing the subject of LPRs to light. Anyone watching the CBS program Person of Interest can probably relate to the potential abuses of them if strict and enforceable standards aren't put into place soon.

John - Amen to that. And dawn and dusk are the most dangerous times for hoofed animal-vehicle close encounters.
