Overlay a normal car-wingmirror with a small LCD screen.

If you are driving too slowly an artificial tyrannosaurus rex reflection would appear, which would catch up with unless you outrun it.

Probably wouldn't be a big-hit with road-safety organisations, but a boon for Jurassic Park fans.

Possibly could be accompanied by dry-witted pithy Jeff Goldblum samples through the stereo.

       I think this is a clever & fun idea, which has been overlooked +

       This might work well with a downloadable clip of the mother-in-law chasing you with a rolling pin.

       Could be accompanied by roars emanating from the rear speakers.

       Would changing this to a Benny-Hill chase make this idea funnier ?   

       (With the music of course)

       I'm sure that once the initial idea was marketed, there'd be hundreds of aftermarket "skins" available. Crazy Frog, anyone? =)

       one could also install a compact servo-powered agitator in the cup holder to vibrate beverages synchronously with the footsteps of said dinosaur/mother-in-law.
