    If you can fall sleep while operating a 3,000 pound machine, wouldn’t that mean the interior is too ‘comfortable’ for safe operation? I smell a class action lawsuit against car companies making people so safe and secure and cozy in their cars that they lose the sense of necessity to pay attention to the activity most likely to kill someone in this country… seems like criminal negligence on the part of car companies.

  • mcas, I’ve fallen asleep in some very uncomfortable places, like in an airport chair with fixed armrests. Comfort has nothing to do with it.
