We know the Jabs “warp-speeded” past the usual safeguards such as double blind clinical trials over a period of time long enough to establish with a high degree of confidence that the stuff being pumped into people’s bodies isn’t unusually dangerous and also that it is effective at doing what it is claimed it will do are in fact unusually dangerous – as well as extremely ineffective.
But do they also addle the victim’s ability to competently operate a motor vehicle? Or is it just another . . . corona coincidence?
It seems to me there’s more – and worse – of what I style Prionic Driving, the reference being to the spike proteins some say are generated within the body (and brain) of the Jabbed, inducing mini-strokes that don’t necessarily floor the victim but rather diminish his capacity over time – until he finally does go horizontal, forever.
These people are all over the road – literally.
They wander across the double yellow, into the opposing lane of traffic. Then wander wide in the opposite direction, off onto the shoulder. This heaving-to goes on and on. Apparently, it is uncommonly difficult for these people to keep their car within its travel lane, in between the opposing lane and the shoulder. The car companies have responded to this problem – which is at pandemic levels – with what they style Lane Keep Assist. Which really ought to be styled Jab-Addled Zombie Assist.
There is also the indifferent drift. The Prionic Driver has great difficulty maintaining a set speed on a given road. Even a very slow speed for the road. The symptoms of such a driver are right there ahead of you, as his car slows down for no apparent (no needful) reason – and then just as randomly picks up speed before slowing down, again. No doubt this is why so many new cars have what is styled Adaptive Cruise Control, which really ought to be styled, Prionic Traffic Mitigation Technology – or something like that.
What it does is automatically slows your car down in response to the car ahead of you slowing down – and then speeding up, again. This eliminates the aggravation of having to slow down – and accelerate – your car, yourself. But it doesn’t eliminate the aggravation.
The Prionic have no sense of tempo, of flow. They are like a needle that skips when you try to play a record. It interrupts and ruins the experience of trying to listen. And of driving, when these kinds of drivers abound.
It’s gotten so bad that semis and delivery trucks are operated with more alacrity – with more skill – than the cars they’re often stuck behind, as in the video accompanying this article. This is not surprising given that commercial drivers tend to be better drivers, if only because it takes a higher degree of skill to drive a big rig or even a big delivery truck than it does most cars. Plus, the drivers of those rigs drive a lot and experience usually makes for better rather than worse as experience accumulates.
But car (and crossover and SUV) drivers? Not so much. Or rather, much more – of marginal to embarrassingly inept/incompetent driving. Probably at least in part because how much driving the cars now do for the “driver,” who is increasingly regarded as presumptively inept/incompetent by the layering on of “assistance technology” with each successive model year. And more and more of them lower themselves to the pitiful standard implied by the need for all that.
Ironic, because the typical new car – any new car – is astoundingly easy to drive fast, including in the curves – because it is so vastly superior in terms of balance and grip and the absence of erratic and potentially dangerous handling quirks. The brakes installed in new cars provide straight-track/no-skidding stopping in no time at all, relative to the time it took to stop the typical car of say 30 or 40 years ago – which would skid straight into whatever you pointed it at, if you didn’t ease off the brakes just a tad to get them to unlock.
But as cars have gotten better – faster – and safer when driven faster – drivers typically drive them slower and less competently than the average driver drove 30 or 40 years ago. It is analogous to someone who loses the ability to shoot straight on his own because the gun has a laser pointer. A shooter who leaves his gun with the laser pointer in its display case, unused.
The Biden Thing urges people to buy electric cars as the way to ease the pain of the doubling of the price of gas he caused. Perhaps a better solution would be to go back to driving ’80s-era K-cars, as these used about half the gas of the typical current-year car and cost about a third what a modern electric car costs.
They weren’t fast – and they didn’t handle or brake especially well. But it didn’t matter because people didn’t drive them very fast – in the straights or the curves. And it made sense to not do that, because they weren’t good at it.
What makes no sense is these people “driving” at K-Car speeds in cars with three times the capability to do it very well.
It’s a shame they can’t. It’s even worse that they’re getting so hard to avoid – and get around.
