In 2019, we want everything to be bigger, better, and faster. That especially applies to our cars and computers. Even if you don’t want the latest model of a car, you want it to be as conveniently built as possible. A more recent car trend in the last 10 years is “keyless cars.” It’s rare to see a person using a key in 2019 in any capacity w/ their car. While very convenient, there are quite a few dangers associated with keyless cars.

Now, there is technically a key to these cars, but the key is actually inside of a fob, which never needs to be put into the ignition to start the car. Instead, the driver can press a button or turn the ignition (without a key inside) to start the car. The car has sensors that allow it to recognize that the key is inside of the car, either in the driver’s bag, jacket, or pocket, and it makes it unnecessary to actually take the key out.

Danger lurks even in hybrid cars, which are touted as being “better for the environment,” but that doesn’t mean they’re better for you. Many of these hybrids are so quiet, it doesn’t even sound like the engine is running. Maybe it is time to bring back some of those classic old cars?
