There I was sitting behind the wheel of our new 2012 Hyundai Elantra, a fine car by any standard. I think one’s initial reaction when they first get into their new automobile is to take a look at all those dials and twiddly-bits, buttons and sliders that you’ll be using when driving. It’s always a good idea to familiarize yourself with the windshield wiper control before driving in the rain. Figuring out how to twin my iPhone with the car took a few moments. All was going well; I was pleased as Punch with the lay-out of the dashboard and was concentrating on the numerous controls located on the steering wheel. I noticed that several of these buttons on the steering wheel – cruise control, audio system – had small bumps on them. “Isn’t that wonderful,” I said. “They think of everything, they’ve even put Braille on the steering wheel controls.” Duh?!?
