Can't tell if you're being sarcastic or not. Even if the pic doesn't show oncoming traffic you can bet that on the dragon on a weekend, there will be oncoming traffic soon enough.

"That's their choice, right?" -- uh, yeah I guess it's someone's choice if they want to mow down a full lane of oncoming traffic on a twisty road... manslaughter is a choice I suppose.

Do these remind anybody else of Commander Pike's motorized wheelchair on the OEM TV Star Trek?

Ha ha, yeah. I thought Pike was an admiral though? Or is that the "new" timeline?

Interesting concept.

I like the idea of warning sings. Somebody hot needs to sing it though, like that Katy Perry chick. People don't pay attention to ugly singers anymore.
