I have wondered about that situation....

Much like what we see everyday, the 18 wheeler hits his brakes, and suddenly moves to an adjacent lane....

If you are following in the "Stupid Zone" e.g. about 1 car length behind his bumper, you are going to hit whatever he dodged.

That pretty much applies to a lot of other drivers, too.

Is driving cutting into your phone time?
For me ,it makes my job easier and safer from killing some auto driver that I didnít know was where I canít see them,some people are too old to learn to use the devices that could save their life.
Cutting into phone time,getting caught using the phone in a semi will put a dent in your wallet so NO it doesnít cut into my phone time.

Love chasing white lines but they are difficult to catch.Hate drivers with no STOPLIGHTS.

It's not about learning anything. If you don't already know it's stupid to be relying on your cruise control to keep you from running into the car in front of you, well...

Why ain't we ridin'?

Yep in a perfect situation your theory would be all one would need BUT in a non perfect situation tehnonogy will save someoneís family,we as Prfessional drivers of 80,000 lb vehicle have been taught to do anything possible to keep from taking a life and in some circumstance drivers make the decision to sacrifice their own life to save others,now we as drivers can count on having some help from technology.

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?

Managing following distance and avoiding slow speed fender benders would be welcome. But first, Honda should straighten out the confusing button direction choices now used to control the 2018 system.
They won't be on the 2019s. They're already released. Only big changes are that they took away the white one and replaced it with a black one. 2019 buyers get two key fobs.http://powersports.honda.com/

I programmed two Arduinos. One I built with Artificial Intelligence. One I built with Artificial Stupidity.

I accidentally let them touch on the workbench, and the resulting explosion took out half of my garage.
