seen on the north end of a southbound car
squeezed into a parking space fit for a motorcycle

you've seen 'em, maybe even have 'em yourself. it's called obstacle avoidance system or parking assist. basically it's sonar for the front and back bumpers of your car so that you don't scratch your precious paint, especially handy for those who are "parking space challenged" and who drive large cars with huge blind spots.

today i saw an obstacle avoidance system on a mini cooper.

what's up with that?
