Emergency Braking Systems, from all manufacturers, do not work well with stationary objects in the lane.

Sounds bizarre, sure, and they can detect them, however there is a false positive issue where they take a non-cautious approach. This is because phantom braking that can be caused by it, potentially leading to a rear-ender or poor driving experience.

It is being solved by some companies slowly, but it will be a long way before it is fool-proof.
