I don't know why this drawing shows a tank at the front of the truck, but I guess that in Russia people drive T-90s like in the US people drive Fords. I wish the technology was so cheap that this could be implemented for real, because I'm sure it would save a lot of lives on the road. [Engadget]

It is all fine and good until you forgot that you were looking at the back of the truck and not the real road....and rear-ends the truck.

The one big job of any driver is to not hit what is in front of them. Stay a safe distance apart from what is directly in front of you and it would work a lot better.
