Slightly Obvious

Is it really possible for someone driving a car to NOT know they’re slipping on ice? So much so that it warrants a fleeting warning light on the dash? And while I appreciate that Mazda thought it important to install said light, the timing for its activation is less than optimal. I mean really, when I’m slipping on icy roads, I don’t exactly have the time or attention bandwidth to play “Decipher the 1/2 inch Unintelligible Dashboard Warning Light.”

Mazda probably could have spent an extra 10 minutes working with Apple to develop a reasonable iPod adapter. That surely would have proven to be a far superior safety feature than the “Obvious Ice Light.” But then I wouldn’t have to memorize the entire playlist structure of my iPod – A task that’s definitely more fun than sliding on the ice! (Not.)
