Ladies and gents, in light of the tragic train crash in Philly (and yes we know this isn’t about Dallas) we wanted to touch on this touchy subject.
Are we safe on the buses and trains that are operated by some mystery guy/gal in which a random company qualifies for us? I mean who really knows what these guys’ qualifications really are. No one really knows except for the ones actually in the system already.
Of course in my personal opinion I feel safer on a train, but then again as the new modern day keeps trucking along. Are trains and planes and any other large transportation vehicle becoming less safe due to the opportunity to be hacked?
I mean multiple articles in just the past 2-3 months have been nothing about planes being hacked. If they can hack that they can damn sure hack a little train. While on a flip, I’m not so sure they could hack a bus? With less technology and opportunity to these days’ hackers the better off you are.
Does everyone know what that means?
Our tech age will progress and our transportation methods will back track.
EVERYONE back to the saddle and carriage.
Obviously we know this would never happen. Society today would never be willing to give up their new 2015 mustang just for the chance of them being hacked.
A more likely possibility will include security defense systems on our cars to help fight off hackers.
Which in return will lead to an inflated price for those willing to have the special software.
I’m telling you people this is the future as we know it. Hackers and cyber crooks that is where we are headed as a nation. Now I know I got off topic just a bit, because obviously the train wasn’t hacked. It just had some lazy bozo who fell asleep and magically has no memory as to what happened on that day.
I mean who would have said anything different if we were in his shoes, let’s be honest? You just killed 9 humans and injured several dozen more. The last thing you would want to do is come out and say…”sorry I fell asleep” or better yet…”I was texting sorry” He better not say that. Nobody would be able to handle the truth and that is the truth.
So how about taxi’s or possibly even a limo service? These seem to be a little safer right? Taxi’s maybe not as much as a limo but still if you think the guy is sketchy just say pull over and run.
Me and my wife took a limo the other night through Dallas (Rowlett VIP Limo to be exact) and I tell you what..Talk about luxury. Wow. It felt nice and I must admit I felt pretty safe as well.
What do you guys think? Which method would you prefer for transportation? Leave a comment below with what you think.
