Reduce Road rage with Cruise Control dummy.

Road Rage Reduction

Did you see that movie about the inventor of intermittent windshield wipers?  Fascinating movie about what men do. They dig in.

Safe Roads Can Save Lives

We’ve all seen it before. A flood of heavy traffic suddenly stops us in the middle of the highway, and while we’re fumbling for our phones so that Google Maps can lead us out of the madness, we think to ourselves, “Was it another car crash?” Chances are, the answer’s …
