Amazing footage: When your brain fails, you need airbags

Not an MB crash, but a cautionary tale here. ESP, ABS, and SRS systems can save your life, but they can't work miracles. You need to do your part by at least slowing down for red lights, no matter how empty the streets are.

Amazing. I stop for the simple reason that if I do run a red light, it will be that one time that there's a cop somewhere I'm not looking.

It looks like he may have made it under if he hadn't swerved/braked when he did

If there is a red light, it's usually because it's useful. This is why it is useful.
