Automotive Sensory Deprivation
Driving in a car has so many sensory limitations.
You never get to regard peoples' hair at a stop light. You don't get to experience the scent of peoples' shampoo, perfume or cologne at a red light or as they pass you on the bike lanes.
You never hear fingers drumming gently on handlebars as the cyclist next to you enjoys a song on their mp3 player.
You don't get to smell the aroma of freshly brewed coffee to go.
You miss out on overhearing the passionate discussions of children as they flow through the city.
You can't hear the crunch of teeth on a fresh, autumn apple.
