Are they still going to have loud blaring horns and a recorded string of curses in case someone cuts you off as options?

“Why?”

Well, the Left thinks that parents are the BIGGEST THREAT to the proper raising of children, so I suspect they believe that drivers are the biggest threat to the operation of automobiles.

Awesome- take away brakes too- what a fantastic idea now that we are letting criminal illegal aliens drive ‘legally’ now- Gee, what could possibly go wrong?

And when the brakes fail, the accelerator will s stuck, and the windows and locks stay put, the stereo will start blasting “If You Love Me Baby Tell Me Loud”. ( “High Anxiety” reference)

My late Dad used to say that in the 1950’s and early 60’s, some American cars were sold without the steering wheel. That was selected later from catalogs. I could never figure out if he was joking about that or not.

I didn’t come from the sort of family where you could just say “Daddy, I think your lying, exaggerating or just making stuff up, which is it?” Until I had moved away from home and was in my 20’s, I would never have dared to say that.
