There's not much in the way of tools.. really only a Techstream which many already have since they are used for all Toyota/Scion/Lexus. And for most things you don't even need that, a generic OBDII (and sometimes a multimeter) will do. Most of the routine maintenance is no different than a conventional vehicle.

So you're great a going in a straight line while on the phone, good for you. When something happens, are you going to be able to react appropriately? You might assume yes, but who knows, and I as the driver in front of you as we approach a traffic jam do not wish to determine this experimentally. Put the phone down.

That's not true at all. My state has no such limitation, and explicitly authorizes an audible signal as an indication of passing.

As a bicyclist you should know from experience that motorists going around obstructions greatly increases the risk of hitting cyclists (not to mention pedestrians and other vehicles). A driver gets fed up sitting behind a stopped car and whips into the bike lane, right as you're passing by..
