World Usability Day is coming up!

World Usability Day is an annual event that celebrates and educates people on usability all over the world. There are over 225 events planned this year.

As they say on the World Usability Day site:

“It’s about making our world work better.
It’s about “Making Life Easy” and user friendly.

Technology today is too hard to use. A cell phone should be as easy to access as a doorknob.
In order to humanize a world that uses technology as an infrastructure for education, healthcare, transportation, government, communication, entertainment, work and other areas, we must develop these technologies in a way that serves people first…”

This year, the theme is transportation, and they’ve even put a bit of a green spin on it.

So in honor of that, I’m going to share a couple of my all-time favorite transportation-related usability “bloopers”:

Cup holder too close to the stick shift Street names are almost identical.

And this one is my all-time favorite!

Should I get out of the car or not?
