Driving At The Speed of Light

 

 

If you could drive at the speed of light...

Advantages:

  • Whenever you approach a red traffic light, the doppler shift makes it always look green.
  • You can make use of the "slingshot effect" on the curves.
  • You can't see a police car's red light in your mirror.

Disadvantages:

  • You can't see reflectors in the road.
  • Flashing your high beams at the car in front does no good (actually, your headlights would be useless).
  • You tend to miss a lot of the nice scenery.
  • Your cell phone wouldn't be of much use unless you were calling people closer to your destination.
