Volvo Tells You When You Need a Break

Volvotimeforabreak

We’ve tested the latest Volvo safety innovations, like the company’s collision warning and blind-spot detection systems, but the company has a new one on the way for the S80, XC70 and V70 models later this year: Driver Alert Control. The system will monitor driving behavior and suggest when the driver should take a break to either rest or refuel on caffeinated beverages.

My 2004 Audi will blink the trip timer after 2 hours of driving as an alert. I don't know when Audi started that feature.

Is this so the car can get a diaper change or some Starbucks?

Probably a subliminal message Volvo put in to get people to buy more from IKEA? All I know is that after 2-3 hours driving or riding in a vehicle, no matter how posh or basic, I would still need to get out to stretch.

This reminds me of the Nintendo Wii. It suggest you take a break after you play for a while. Just as I do with the Wii, I would probably just ignore it and keep on driving.

I have a 2001 A4 indicates when you've been driving for 2 hours. It's only news when Volvo does it. They're the safety oriented car manufacturer.

I have a 2006 Pontiac GTO that also tells you to stop and rest after 200 miles of nonstop driving.

Rimonabant (also known as Zimulti, Acomplia, Slimona or Obitone) is an anorectic anti obesity drug. It is a CB1 cannabinoid receptor antagonist.
