Given Toyota's previous experience with failing brake systems in the USA ...
I wonder if they should be tinkering with them.
Automation applied to road vehicles can be dangerous in certain situations.
Having driven in weather extremes in Northern Canada (Yukon and Ontario) certain types of precipitation an fool (trick) automatic systems and create situations that are unsafe that might not have without the system.
And what of the system mouse trails? Will they leave evidence in memory that can be used to prosecute the driver as is the case with seat belt triggers in North America? The Ontario Provincial Police regularly seize these modules to determine a drivers actions prior to a seat belt trigger. I removed mine from my SUV in Ontario so the OPP's Sgt. Cam Woolley types are unable to use them,.
P.S. My last 'at fault' accident was over 26 years ago, n case some do-gooder objects.
