TPMS sensors. Yeah, I need to spend an extra $200 for sensors for winter tires so something can tell me if my tire pressure is low.

GCFI outlets, switches, breakers for fuck's sake, leave the goddamn power on, if I wanted it off i would turn the mother fucker off

toilets that don't work

dish washing detergent that doesn't clean

laundry detergent that doesn't clean

car doors that lock magically cuz you're too stupid to hit the little button yourself

car lights that come on magically cuz you're too stupid to know when ti's dark (honestly though, given what I see, this one may actually be a good idea)

car headlights that stay on all the time because everyone else is too stupid to see a 2 ton 20 foot long vehicle.

Seems most of them only turn on the headlights and dash lights, so people drive around thinking their lights are on but their ass end isn't lit. It's made the problem worse, IMO.

Odd on the toilets. The old ones I can plug often even the power ones at work too. My new low flow ones at home I have never plugged. How I have no idea. TPMS while annoying and $$$ dose save lives.

So would wearing helmets in the car, or requiring all children to be buckled into a safety pod, or requiring all cars to be limited to 45mph, or monthly safety inspections of all vehicles, or breathalyzer interlocks on all cars...

TPMS is government mandated on all new vehicles.

There is a better way. BMW has done it for 15 years. It uses the steering angle sensor, wheel speed sensors and traction/ABS module to tell if one wheel is turning slower or faster than the rest. the assumption (based on the fact that all tires should be the same circumfrence) is that one tire is low on pressure. The system works awesome and requires 0 additional parts. It is only a problem if some dumbo has 4 different brand shitty tires on a car and 2 of them are worn to cords. Or if you run staggered tires that are not the same rolling diameter. Otherwise, it works amazingly. Unfortunately that was too simple and even BMW was forced to have active TPMS by the gubment.

Merry-go-rounds. I never see those anymore, unless it's some out-of-the-way small town park that time forgot.

Great way for kids to understand centrifugal/centripetal force whichever the fuck one it is.

I live in a relatively free state. The only thing I can think of is my health insurance used to be affordable. Now it's not.

Just the other week I needed a can of spray paint to make a sign and I went through self checkout at the Walmart. I had to wait for the supervisor to come over and key in their code stating that I was over 18 and was allowed to purchase my paint.

No CFC's, Lowered the VOC's, removed the lead. And some places ask for ID when you buy it.
It's debatable whether or not if it's better or worse. Personally, I think the older versions performed better and last longer.

Let's mandate 10 point roll cages in every vehicle. Annoying to climb over, but think of the children!

The TPMS is broken on every single company vehicle where I work. And nobody has died. Weird.

What I meant to say is I never USED to see it regulated.
