A Car for the Blind?

Written by The Sarcasmist on July 5, 2010 - Comments (5)

The National Federation of the Blind and Virginia Tech have announced that they plan to demonstrate a prototype vehicle equipped with technology that will help a person without sight to be able to get behind the wheel and drive. The demonstration is said to be scheduled for sometime in 2011.

The point the Federation wanted to make and continue to make, is the acceptance of the basic idea of the idea; that a blind person could actually drive. (Examiner)

I am still waiting to see a decent driver among the sighted. Every day I have to have near death experiences because people are idiots behind the wheel, so excuse me if I find it a bit difficult to foresee a time in the near (or even distant) future where a person without sight can operate a motor vehicle. A car for the average idiot is a much bigger priority than one for the blind.

The goal is noble, but maybe those who are trying to help the blind should consider keeping them out of harm’s way instead of putting them in a steel death-trap and pitching them in the middle of traffic.

  1. This is so idiotic.

    Blind and deaf people want special tools to work with their disabilities, but then when someone tells them they can make it so that they’re not blind or deaf, they considerate it an insult to them as a person.

    How about we start finding a way to get blind people to see again?

  2. Typical, you’re being so short sighted!!!

    What we should be doing is using the same technology for all those sighted idiots as well.

  3. Well we might as well have drivers on the road who can’t see. I mean, we consistently elect people to positions of power, to solve our problems who can’t think….
