I received my stimulus check today and although I wasn't dependent on it..its nice to have. Has anyone else received theirs? George picked up his new car today. They've made so many things supposedly user friendly that you need to be pretty technology savvy to drive it. This one has a few new things for him to get used to and he's been driving a fairly advanced car model already. New things discovered are a pad you lay your phone on to automatically keep it charged. A lane assist to keep you from drifting into another lane and also a parking assist. No more shift stick..a dial. I thought the rear view camera and the side mirrors that alerted to nearby cars were pretty cool on his old car but all of these new additions cover areas where old age has diminished my driving confidence in my own old jalopy, a 2001 Honda with only 20K miles. If I still drove enough to warrant it, I'd get myself a new one. I still need a form of transportation to get around short distances locally should it become necessary. Saving car insurance costs would easily pay for another type of mobility that would work but NY still has street legality issues.
