Well, they could use that, too...

I was half-listening to the TV. There was a segment on a recommendation that something be made mandatory on cars...sounded like a "civility control."

Eh?

I listened closer. Alas, it turned out to be a "stability control."

Well, they could use that, too...

Non-silly P.S. Some have argued that things intended to increase safety have a side effect of causing people to be more reckless, since they count on the safety equipment. (The ultimate result of this point of view: car safety by mounting a long, very sharp spike in the middle of the steering wheel.) I wonder whether the stability control will have that effect?
