I saw this last night also. Thought it was a good idea to help keep people from running red lights. The only thing will be that there will be a lot more rear end collisions on the road.

There may not be rear end collisions if you have a Mercedes equipped with the distance sensor that stops the car behind this one, if you were being followed by the new E-class for example. This would also be bad news for bank robbers and those crazy folks we see fleeing from the police on live tv chases. lol

"Applies" is in so many ways a better word than "slams."

Why does crude sell?

I heard the AMG cars "cram" power into the engine as well.

This is going to be interesting to see if people rely on such a thing.

It is almost to the point where cars drive them selves and you just sit there and do nothing. That is going to be a bad, boring day for me.
