Google patented a sticky surface on a car so when a person is hit, he doesn’t go out flying and suffer additional damage. This idea is quite useful but reminds of the quirky Japanese inventions (I love the toilet roll on your head invention). Google focused too much on functionality instead of thinking all the trauma that might be caused with a person glued to the hood or additional injury that a person may suffer being stuck on the hood.

So what can be done? Well, we can first start driving more carefully, meaning speed less. Yup, just don’t be a speed racer and many problems will vanish. Also, as pedestrians, you will lose when you are hit by a car so be cautious when crossing on the road. That text or YouTube video can wait. So let’s be all a bit more careful and life will be good.
