2013 Scion FR-S: My Imaginary Friend
August 10, 2012
So there I was, driving away from CasaHashi early one morning on my way into Edmunds HQ. Then I hear a beep. Beep? Why are you beeping? What have I done?
That beep was accompanied by the passenger seatbelt warning light, but I was alone. Oh...so...alone. Strangely enough, the only thing on the passenger seat was my iPhone.
"That can't possibly be heavy enough to trigger the seatbelt warning, can it?" I thought to myself. Sure enough as soon as I removed the phone, the warning went away. A put the phone back and then a few seconds later, beep.
This seems far too sensitive to me. That threshold has got to be set higher than a few ounces, don't you think?
