New Automatic Braking Systems in Vehicles are Flawed

More and more, auto manufacturers are pushing the latest safety features on their vehicles. You may have seen auto advertisements touting how safe cars are becoming with autonomous features such as Forward Collision Warning, Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Assist Systems, and Parking Assist Systems.

Manufacturers are introducing new Crash Avoidance Technology, which they hope will eventually lead to completely driverless vehicles. However, as the below video shows, not all of these systems are 100% perfect. We have to remember that technology sometimes fails, and this can prove to be more of a hazard than a safety measure.
