The All New Ford Informer

A woman who left the scene after she rear ended someone got turned in by her Ford vehicle via the automated emergency assistance system. When contacted by the dispatcher she tried to deny the accident but when police came out the car gave her away, again, due to all the damage.

So, "Found On Road Dead" and "Fix Or Repair Daily" are outdated so what do we use now?

Actually, I'm allergic to coffee. But I've had two or three cans of Monster in the last few hours.

Makes you wonder how many have fallen to the latest plug-in data devices that use the port on cars since 1998.
Get better car insurance rates ... Get your car problems monitored/fixed via our cellphone data app .. etc.

I agree, BrokeDad. I saw an article quite a while back that was pointing out that the car's computer would happily snitch on you when asked, giving up useful stuff like the road speed, engine speed, which pedals are being pressed how hard and so on for the last several seconds before impact.

Plus, given how iffy my GPS is about calculating my road speed, I'm disinclined to let that nosy Flo adjust my insurance rates.

Hopefully this did not happen in my beloved state of Florida.

This brings to mind the undisclosed "feature" GM built into OnStar in the late 1990's -- it was constantly recording road noises, engine sounds, and what was said in the car. When there was an accident, it would retain the last ten seconds. When they analyzed the recordings, they found the last thing 98.4% of the people said was: "Oh, sh$$!" except in Texas where the last words were always "hold my beer and watch this."
