Google’s ‘Human Flypaper’ Would Protect Pedestrians

Google has acquired a patent for a sticky adhesive substance on the hoods of cars that acts like flypaper in the event a pedestrian is struck, keeping the victim affixed to the vehicle rather than being thrown from the car as it brakes. What do you think?

“There might be fewer hit-and-runs, but we could be looking at a lot more kidnappings.”

“This doesn’t take into account that some people rely on being injured by cars for a living.”

“So is it cool to go back to staring down at my phone once I’m stuck to the hood?”
