The sensing systems don't see anything beyond what is in their immediate path. Obviously not going to help traffic flows, in fact, their "panic" braking may cause just the opposite to happen.

On a different note, here's a video of a rear end collision at an intersection. Who do you think is at fault and why?

IMO the car who hit the SUV for following TOO close is at fault for the collision or got the ticket anyway. SUV had the light and therefore the right-of-way even though it was a left turn. The oncoming car, although they were NOT to be in the intersection did not "cause" the accident. If the following car had enough room and not tailgating through the turn, they would have had enough time to stop even not knowing the oncoming cars position.

Legally I guess I would also say it was the following car since they had "lost control" of their car. It may also be the boob who jumped into the intersection ostensibly running a red light leading to the eventual rear-ender.

I dunno' tell me, tell me !! I could flip-flop all day on this.

Assuming it took place in the US, it couldn't possibly be either of the drivers. Both drivers could probably find a lawyer willing to sue to city for improper street lighting or misleading signals.

You know they're making coffee in decaf now. This seems a little extreme to yell at a child for touching a car in order to balance himself while stepping up on a curb. It's one thing for a kid to be dragging a stick or a toy across your car's finish but it's quite another to reach out and keep from falling. Do you yell at the elderly and invalids too?

I don't need coffee, I'm high on LIFE!

When I said "smack on the hood", he seriously smacked the car. It was a little more extreme than he just needed something to balance on to lift his foot 5 inches off the ground up onto the curb. It made a lovely "thump" noise as he did it, too. But, I didn't say anything.

I'd say the douche entering the intersection on the red definitely had a contribution. His presence is what caused the first car making the left nail the brakes. Note I said contributed, not caused as there is a distinction

If they got the plate/info of the driver who entered the intersection on red, they may have a case against him. If the following car wasn't so close or accelerated slower, there may be time to react.

Won't know for sometime who the insurance co finds at fault. If they find the 'following' car at fault, I doubt the poster will post it publicly.

My point in sharing this is to reiterate defensive driving and being aware of one's surroundings. Another carry over from my mcy days is looking both ways before proceeding on green if I'm the first vehicle at the light.

I bet in the future there will be another nanny to protect from this sort of incident.

Most people figure it out after losing 15 or so Pokemon that run away on the first try that you just can't do it (you can google it and you'll see plenty of forum posts asking if this has happened to anyone else). I tried it riding shotgun with my dad driving on I-80 and no dice. So the phone stays in the car dock on my drives. Only time I'll answer in hands-free mode is if it's one of my parents calling me or something.

But, if we're driving through the city and my boyfriend is with me, I hand him my phone and he catches things for me. He doesn't really care for Pokemon but he's my designated catcher, hehe.

Just wanted to clear that up for you old fuddy-duddies who don't like them there pokeymen
I know that haha, but there have still been accidents caused by people trying to catch a Pokemon...

And I'm not THAT old (early 30's). Sadly, I have friends and co-workers that are older than I am who are playing that silly game

Men in general are usually stereotyped as the most aggressive drivers, but I don't think they have anything on soccer moms.
I don't know how it is 'everywhere' but by me in Florida - women are the most aggressive drivers as well. Sure, it's more likely that two guys driving fast cars are going to race than women - but that's not the point. Generally, in my area, women are more aggressive drivers than men. I see this ALL the time and the only thing I can think of is they get out of tickets (warning only) more than men do. There are more male police officers. Chances are a man is going to pull them over and if they're nice enough - the officer will just give a warning instead of a ticket. Other than that - I cannot think of any other logical reason why women (IN MY AREA) have become so care free in regards to traffic laws...

I can literally go for miles after miles without touching the brake since the semi slows down and I have that 5 seconds to notice his slowing down. I coast.

Works. Every. Time.
This works really well for me with the cruise control feature that matches the speed of the vehicle in front of me, brakes if need be, stays in the lane (I'm okay with having a helping hand) and accelerates when needed.

On another note - it sort of happened again (my original complaint). I was on the highway yesterday and needed to get off at the next exit - which was coming up quicker than I had expected and traffic was a bit tight. I turned on my right signal, the driver in the next-lane over made room for me and I maneuvered into place. No problem. Apparently the sensor felt the left front corner of my car was too close to the car in front of me and hit the brakes. The driver behind me must have thought I was crazy after I “brake checked” him.

As mentioned, it’s not perfect yet and I appreciate the idea. It’s just not going to replace the human being.

Sal-E-S2PENDOUS, can this self braking be turned off or disabled? I know our car (MY 2015) doesn't have it. All we have is the lane departure (which is already turned off) and front collision warning (which I haven't figured out how to turn off).

I'm pretty sure it can be... I'll have to check and get back to you but my brain is always running in ten different directions so it might take me awhile to actually remember.

I always keep one car length for every 10 MPH of speed. So, 50 MPH means 5 car lengths, 10 MPH means 1, you get the picture...

The road is horrendously annoying as it is because everybody needs a truck or SUV so anyone in a car is at a disadvantage to begin with being unable to see around the vehicle in front of you most of the time. And with everyone tailgating - it makes driving dangerous at almost all times.

Then you have everyone texting, posting Facebook updates and taking pictures to share on Instagram while they're driving. It takes all the enjoyment out of driving. Driving used to be one of the things I found relaxing in life.
Me too! Couldn't have said it better myself. I used to go take a drive because it was fun and relaxing. And I still do today but, more often than not, it becomes a very aggravating and frustrating experience because of all the morons out there who don't take driving seriously...tailgaters, cell phone drivers, people who don't follow basic driving etiquette (no turn signals, blocking the left lane, 15 MPH under the speed limit, weaving, headlights off in the rain...)

It's like we're just devolving as a species or something...

There's research that shows that drivers who text/talk are just as dangerous as drunk drivers. I usually have at least one close call a week with drivers like this here in the DC Metro area (VA, MD, DC).

And, I agree, the punishment for texting while driving should be just as severe as it is for DUI-type offenses. I believe the figure is about 6,000 people killed every year by distracted drivers and thousands more injured. It's really a public health hazard that needs to be addressed in the most serious way possible.

There was actually a teenage girl in PA last week who walked into a busy street with traffic and got hit while playing Pokemon. She'll survive but had a nasty head wound and some broken bones. Some other people playing it in my area this weekend ended up breaking into a school and got arrested....
