The adaptive cruise on my 2017 RAV4 is one of the best things about a great car. If the fool in front of you decides to lock up the brakes because a chipmunk just ran out onto the road, the car will start to brake before your brain even notices the brake lights in front of you. "Keep a safe distance," you say. EXACTLY . . . the RAV has three distance settings on the cruise. If someone decides to fill the empty space, the car just backs off to adjust the following distance.
around here, with all the fools constantly cutting off and crowding into your safe zone, would burn out you brakes really quick. can computers compensate for stupid? no, that is something that cant be fixed.
i guess that technology would be useful on freeways, but who drives on those?
