    Um, is this real? So the idea is to blast my ear holes with a Death Screech, and my reaction will be to calmly slow down to a safe speed? I realize I can be cynical, but I'm not feeling the love for that concept.

    The continued assault on the invasion of privacy. Play your speakers too loud- bad, Use it shrill noises to slow people down as long as law enforcement is doing it =it's fine and dandy. Yep the law is the only ones who can break the law-them and aliens.

    Need to do some research to see if this is true. Many agencies have used microwave generators to disperse unruly crowds but they are used very sparingly. But, this wouldn't surprise me - have you tried using the newest CARB gas cans? Talk about the dumbest law ever written.

    Hope I get blasted by one of these so I can then crash into a barricade and sue. Easy money.

    Yeah, on the surface that sounds crazy.Those things are normally used to disperse crowds. In a car it seems like the instinctive move would be to speed up to get away.

    Heck, why don't they just set up a Phalanx gun and shoot anyone who doesn't slow down. That will make sure they never do it again. Seems the breach between citizens and the ones they pay is getting ever wider with the ones being paid steady gaining the upper hand over the payers.

    So . . . you're not married, and you've never missed a turn ?

    You could handle it, if you were.

    This topic reads like it should be on the Onion. From the article:

    Now, in the video, they do reference that it is to get people to move out of the work zone lane. So I could see a practical use for the device if it's a matter of a lane ending, and you're trying to get people to get out of a lane that people are working on or in when the flow of traffic is at a certain minimum pace. The idea being that it is a last resort alert for anybody who is headed directly for an area where people are working. The video does also reference multiple times getting people to slow down. Indiscriminate use of this device would likely cause a lot of problems that would be so obvious that they wouldn't be able to be considered "unintended consequences."

    Go GATORS!
