Trading miles doesn't work when your clients prefer to not have a car
Personally i'd ban the use of cellphones while the car is in motion. Most of them now have accelerometers. Use it. Disable the phone if the car is moving. Less distracted morons on the road is good for everyone. Oh you're a passenger? We'll have passenger mode. Get caught driving with your phone in passenger mode? $10,000 fine and a month in jail. We'll put a stop to driving while distracted real quick. At least for phones. Is it perfect? Nope. But it's a good start.
Why do you include all the accelerometer/disabling/passenger mode steps and not just skip to "Get caught driving with your phone? Huge fine & jail time."? It would require a lot less hurdles.
Personally, I'd prefer taking the device out of the equation, and just stick to "Driving badly? Heavy consequences." Much simpler.
Christ. This article, like so many here at Slashdot, summarizes to: Usability matters. Usability matters A LOT. Open source developers still don't fucking get it.
Here's a thought: if you want people to stop using Word, why not make something better than Word? Shocking.
Christ. This comment, like so many here at Slashdot, summarizes to: Not being a dick matters. Not being a dick matters A LOT. Some commenters still don't fucking get it.
Here's a thought: if you want people to start taking you seriously, why not stop being such an patronising dick? Shocking.
