Volvo, when it need to use the auto brake system..

Insane brakes on this Volvo..

A young kid barely avoids getting run over by a huge truck, after a regional bus driver misses his the bus stop and let off the children passengers right next to a dangerous bend in the road.

The bus driver drove too far and chose to let them off further ahead.

Been there, done that. Only differences, the kid jumped out of the parent's car straight in the middle of the road and the mother decided it's a good idea to start screaming at me after not killing her little "angel". I do remember hitting the brakes but I honestly don't know if the auto brakes kicked in before me or not.

From what I've read, it's still unknown if that truck has auto brakes or not...my guess is that it has.

PS - that kid accelerated faster than a Tesla :mrgreen:
