I agree and have found an additional plus in the system.I have open pilot installed in our 2019 RAV4 Hybrid, and yes I would absolutely use it with loved ones in the car. You have to understand what it does. It helps you drive better, it doesn't drive for you. It is a much enhanced version of ACC and ALC, and in my opinion ads even more safety by helping the driver keep the car better centered and maintaining a safe following distance. Just like ACC and ALC, you are in control at all times. It actually watches you with a driver facing camera to verify that you are, so sorry no bottle trick, and yes it will squawk at you if you are driving and texting. Fall asleep and it will beep loudly at you, then stop the car.
