'ON THE CUTTING EDGE'
A well known slogan :
'Go Greyhound ...and Leave the Driving to Us !'
and nowadays it's . . . 'Let The Car Drive For You !'

~ 24/08/2007 06:13. The engineering department at Volkswagen has developed a system
that politely suggests when it is time for the driver to countersteer. Thanks to the miracle of
Electromagnetic Power Steering, the Volkswagen ESP Plus Steering Impulse Technology will
intervene during slippery driving conditions.

This intervention can shorten stopping distances by ten percent.

Volkswagen assures that the system does not actually steer the car ; rather it merely helps the
driver steer more efficiently through a gentle nudge of the steering wheel.
'NewellClassic.com' ~ 'NewellClassic.com'
~ 'Au Contraire' the system gives just a recommendation to steer, even if barely noticeable,
with a torque of no more than three Newton metres. This is therefore as far as it ever goes : ESP
thinks, the person steers it's only more effective.

'ON THE CUTTING EDGE 'PLUS''
~ It's Coming . . . It's Coming, I'm telling you, 'Newells' are always ahead of there time and one
of these days the 'Engineers at Newell' will figure a way so we drivers will be able to have a siesta
while going down the highway. 'WOW ! What a great idea.

No, No, not a slight snooze at the wheel but all the way back in the stateroom. . . With more and
more frequent bumps and potholes, I hope for 'You 'All' that have 'Murphy Beds' that they won't
close while having that snooze ! . . Oh Boy No ! Till then, the 'Newell Engineers' will have found the
perfect solution . . . I Hope !

For all you drivers out there ;
DO NOT TRY, I REPEAT, DO NOT TRY TO SNOOZE AT THE WHEEL NOR IN THE STATEROOM WHILE
GOING DOWN THE ROAD . . . Anyways, Not yet.

I know some of us are trying hard to snooze at the wheel, but it's a bad habit ! ! !
Now if only someone could put 'Patches' on the market, (similar to anti-smoking patches) a new
version so to help us quit this bad habit of snoozing at the wheel ! ! !
