I would like to know what everyone thinks about DVD players in cars.
More and more frequently I am behind those super sized SUV's with cartoons playing on the player while they are driving around town. I can understand using them on a long car trip where there is nothing to see, like some of the stretches of highway west of here, but it seems ridiculous around town. What happened to good old fashioned conversation? I always found that the car was a great place to talk about sensitive issues since there was no way to escape.
(I probably wouldn't have given this a second thought except I realized I was watching the cartoons playing on the car in front of me and not paying attention to any of the traffic around me.)
Am I just being old fashioned? What rules has anyone else instituted regarding DVD players in the car?
