This is proof he ran a red light and drove like an idiot. The cops can ticket based on videos like this. Should figure out where he is and turn him in.

How about in real life this feature kills you and everybody in your car. Your primary responsibility is to drive the car, this electronic crap can kill you and your entire family.

In 2017 I went for a test drive. A cop was directing traffic on the side of the road. Dark foggy, and raining hard The car came to a sudden stop and an 18 wheeler in back of me hit me. The sensors in the car picked up the cop as a pedestrian in the way. I was ticketed for unsafe braking.
When I showed the judge documentation he dismissed it.

The first thing I did was disable this horrible feature that never should be in existence.
Also let’s suppose you’re in the middle of a carjacking. The system slams on his brakes. Now your car is stolen and a bullet is put through your head by the carjacker.
I would floor it and make sure the carjacker was under the car. But now you’re dead because of this retarded safety feature.

Well, someone has certainly been watching a bit too much Hollywood 😂

Anyways, I think car Nanny's can be a bit much, but overall they do more good for the general public than bad. For the 1% such as yourself, they give the option of turning it off completely. However, remember that we live in a society where everyone behaves and thinks totally different from one another.

This is why autonomous vehicles will not happen in our lifetime. People can accept human error. People are unwilling to accept machine error, even if its a small fraction of the time. They would rather allow 100 road deaths due to human drivers, than accept 1 due to the machine. Not making judgement - its just human nature. I have been automating factory equipment my entire adult life, and when something stops working, 100% of the time the operator blames the machine. The fact that often the machine was over-ridden, not operated properly, or otherwise tampered with by them, is irrelevant in their mind.
