No Need to Be Rash

I don't like the fact that many car manufacturers choose to label the red button on their keyless entry devices "panic." I'd prefer "emergency" or even "alert." "Panic" implies a loss of control that is unnecessary and, frankly, suggests a lack of faith in car manufacturers that their customers will remain calm in a potentially dicey situation. No need to insult us after buying your product.
