This piece originally started out quite different. With all the talk about self-driving cars, I wanted to do a throw-back piece that asked the question “Where’s my Flying Car? They’ve been talking about this since the 1950s. Why don’t we have them yet?
Driving around I still see way too many people texting and driving, despite the law here that prohibits it. I decided to merge the two ideas into a droll, PSA-type message.
