    Its not just about pressing a button - accidents are reported automatically. Read the OP, it is legislated for cars in EU. Its not a case of making cars more reliable for cheaper than this system

    Almost had the chance to test that button this morning!!!

    Thoroughly tested the collision avoidance system though

    Taxi, with no lights, pulled in right in front of me from a slipway from my left. I was doing maybe 60km/h when he pulled in front with maybe 10m to spare, maybe more, not sure. Mayhem in the cabin Alarm sounds, red thing illuminates on the instrument cluster (will have to go look in the manual what it looks like), I get pulled back into the seat by the seat-belt, almost taking by breath away, and the Treg slams on the brakes!!
