Saved.

I loved my car very much. I have never had any problems with it and it was very reliable. On Friday at about 5:30 it saved my life. I rear ended a Chevy Silverado doing about sixty… He was almost at a dead stop. The truck didn’t have blinkers or brake lights. Before I could even safely react the airbags were in my face. I screamed and veered to the right. I couldn’t believe what just happened. I was able to walk out of my car without anything more than some bruising and a headache.

The cop and other driver questioned how I was even alive. The only answer I could come up with was… My seatbelt.

voice activated command can save energy at stop signs and stop lights also in heavy traffic... say "stop" and gas usage will pause while the car is stopped not wasting any energy and will help stop the pollution released when it isn't necessary... save gas money and environment ... this is an update to "pause button" i feel this might be a better route... might need button though cause car might be too noisey filled with music or kids voices in back seat ... just an idea... hope u can figure out best method... ty mk
