There's all kinds of awful decisions to be made on car controls. The French love of stalk-mounted horns comes to mind, or maybe acres of flat touchscreens instead of controls you can feel. But I think the worst one I've encountered recently is the one that actually gets the authorities involved.
I'm talking about rear-view mirror-mounted 9-1-1 emergency call buttons. I've seen them in passing before, but I don't think the true abominability of them became clear until last week, when I was driving the new Viper TA around Willow Springs. More on that soon.
