pc/electronics, cops, and can they do that?
Well, after rocking the carpc for only a couple weeks, I gotta say it's awesome. Even while not fully finished, it's better than imagined.
However, the wierdest thing also happened to me today. The carpc has never had anything go wrong yet (miracle in itself) despite some crazy driving :crazy:.
On the drive to work today, after turning off my street onto the main street, I happen to be behind a cop. Followed the cop for a mile or so, stopping at lights, etc. So, I was close to his/her cop car many times, with nothing going wrong. Down the road a fair bit more, the original cop turns off and I keep going. Not long after this I see a car pulled over from a different cop (they should've been out yesterday for st. patty's day). So I switch lanes as to give them some room. As soon as I pass the cop car, the carpc/touchscreen immediately turns off. I mean, it's not like the power switch was pressed or ignition shut off (i'm still driving) because it didn't hibernate. It was 1/2 a second and everything was hard shut off. It wasn't any cabling coming lose, because I turned it back on again with my power switch a few seconds later. Of course, it was annoying sitting through the chkdsk stuff and windows didn't shutdown properly, etc...
I was in shock, but it could have been maybe I just don't know anything about PA law. So here's my question... Is it even possible for another car to have something/anything that would even cause this? Is it legal, even for cops to use if something does exist? Is there anything I can do about it?
