    LA Times car writer Charles Fleming tells us he’s too old, lazy or stiff to drive safely and check his blind spot:

    “For people who — like me — are too old, too stiff-necked or simply too
    lazy to turn around when they make a lane change, the 7-inch display
    screen even broadcasts a side- and rear-view picture when you hit the
    right-turn signal.”
