2011 Chevrolet Volt: That's Not Distracting
June 24, 2011
So I'm driving down the 405 South yesterday afternoon in our long-term Chevy Volt. I'm doing what I'm supposed to be doing: minding my own business, keeping my road rage in check and paying attention to the all-important electric-to-gasoline switchover. Which was at 39.9 miles (versus the previous day's 34.6), the slower-moving traffic playing right into the Volt's electric hands.
Oh, and I was getting a little more annoyed at the Volt's low-speed braking weirdness, the amount of braking force not always related to the amount of pedal pressure. I eventually started moving the console lever to L as much as possible to slow the Volt instead of using the brakes.
And then, I see this:
Seriously, how's a guy supposed to concentrate on ANYTHING other than 'ol Jen's naked body lying right there in front of him? She's been taunting me for weeks now.
On a completely different subject, I've been drinking a lot more water lately.
But here's what I'd like to know: How much have accidents increased on this one stretch of the 405 since this billboard has been up?
