Trucks should mount a wide-screen TV on the back

 While I was in traffic this morning, I was pondering the fact that I really don’t like being stuck behind a truck or other large vehicle, in stop-and-go traffic.  I realized that I really like to be able to see what’s coming up on the road, and what to expect.  So maybe, when video technology gets cheap enough, we can start mounting big video screens to the back of these trucks, which display an image from a camera in the front of the truck.  That way, I could see what was coming up even when I’m stuck behind the big-ass semi.  That would be cool.

Of course, once you’ve got those big displays mounted, I suppose it would only be a matter of time before they started using them for advertising…  <sigh>

    LOL! That’s why I prefer getting stuck in traffic behind the yuppie puppies with the BMWs, Mercedes, or Hummers…they’re all tricked out with the head-rest TV displays.

    It takes a bit of squinting, but sometimes, you can make out SportsCenter. 🙂

    Don’t drive so close behind these big trucks or any other kind of vehicle. You would be surprised at how much you can see then.
