Puncture Juncture

The latest transportation technology is found where the rubber meets the road.

The next furtherance to your automobile
is to put brains inside each inflatable wheel.
The recent debut of intelligent tires
will become a new option for car and truck buyers.

The trick that these wheels are prepared to perform
is to let you know how badly tread pattern’s worn.
They’ll predict how much stress placed on shocks that your load will,
and swerve to avoid, so a squirrel won’t be road kill.

If black ice is forming, these tires will perceive it.
A hub cap flies off? They will try to retrieve it.
Among all these features, their greatest appeal
will be tires with more brains than the dunce at the wheel.
