Car cameras predicted in Seinfeld episode

ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – I remember an old Seinfeld episode where Jerry and Kramer imagined the future. It included cars with periscopes. Drivers could monitor traffic problems.

The same idea surfaced in a Curb Your Enthusiasm Episode. Those jokes are sort of a reality. Have you ever seen a Google Street View car? Its camera gives us images of the places we travel.

It probably won’t be long before someone comes up with a traffic camera for drivers to help avoid the lane with the stalled car ahead.

The only problem is drivers already have too many distractions. As tempting as a car periscope may be, I hope it doesn’t arrive anytime soon. I hope Kramer was wrong.

I’m JB and that’s The Way it Oughta Be.
