For the holidays, a black box

Bad weather, bad drivers, bad last-minute-shopping attitudes are a deadly combination

There's one thing that brings people together every holiday season, and we're not talking about the mall: It's car accidents. Bad weather, bad drivers, bad last-minute-shopping attitudes make for a deadly combination. So Crave is doing our part to spread cheery thoughts by passing along the "RoadBox."

This "vehicle accident camera system" from South Korea, according to Red Ferret, "incorporates a speed and acceleration monitor to give you some all round information about the circumstances leading up to the crash, 14 seconds before and 6 seconds after." It just goes to show that hazardous traffic is an international affair, as we recently posted an item on a similar black box system in Japan.

Happy Holidays to all.
