Safety Is No Accident

The new Mercedes S-Class has a great feature, it's a radar based breaking system.
It seems that Mercedes had so much confidence in this system they decided to demonstrate it for a German TV station. Things did not go as planned and the television crew got to film a three car pile up. Here is the "LINK" via "DIGG"

Here is my favorite quote from the article:
The system "works perfectly in all other circumstances", according to Mercedes.
In all other circumstances, if it's a radar breaking system that's the only circumstance that it needs to work perfectly in.
It doesn't need to work well when you turn on the head lights or roll down the window it needs to work well when you go to stop.

Those crazy Germans.........
