The Inventor of Cruise Control Couldn’t See

Ralph Teetor was an engineer and an all-around amazing guy. He lost his vision as a child, but that didn't slow him down. What did get in his way, however, was his lawyer’s driving. He’d break, then quickly accelerate—all in the name of obeying a conservation-minded, World War II era, 35-mph speed limit. It made Ralph sick to his stomach, so he invented a little something called cruise control.

This Great Big Story was inspired by Genesis.
