Question Distronic Plus Wants To Commit Suicide! Is This Normal?

Not that it makes a difference, but the car is a 2016 S63 Coupe.

The circumstances:

Distronic + set to 65MPH, following a vehicle @ 50MPH - 100 yds ahead there are vehicles stopped in all lanes. The vehicle you're following moves out of your lane, revealing the stationary vehicles now 70 yds ahead.

Here's what it's doing:

Distronic + doesn't see the stationary vehicles ahead and speeds up to the set point, then, at the point where you're scared $hi|7less, the warning beep sounds and you have to hit the brakes to stop in time.

Is this normal, or is something seriously wrong ?
