A friend of mine has a Golf with this same kind of system. She was driving on the motorway and a plastic bag blew off the back of this lorry she was behind. The bag comes towards her car, the car thinks it's an obstacle, slams on the breaks, causes a 15 car pile up and two deaths.
This is terrible. Does anyone know the outcome of any investigation that's taken place into this accident? Clearly this technology needs more time to mature if it poses such a great safety risk.
