      Shit costs money. The more shit you throw into a car, the more costly it will be. That being said, that extra cost is offset by avoiding the greater cost of you inevitably running people over because you were fetching a water bottle and not looking at the road.

      I wish the language used in the video would be better. "Cyclist", "driver", and "pedestrian" promotes conflict, better to use "people cycling", "people driving", and "people walking". And "accident" is not the right term - it is a collision. Here's an article about it:

      Good innovation but what about the back car who can hit the front car after emergency break????

      Very useful when in my street the 95% of cars (even high end ones) haven't got that technology. I don't even know if my A7 has AEB!

      Super cool! You'd think automakers would make this standard to avoid lawsuits.

      Cyclists often sue drivers who are careless and hit them.

      The problem is the cyclists themselves. It's great we have the technology to mitigate these kind of collisions, but a lot of cyclists ride dangerously; like going through red lights.
      Cyclists need to be registered and have insurance and also have at least one bicycle MOT a year.

      @Samuel Bomorse it's a shame that you have shit for brains, and know literally nothing about this. The evidence does not in any way support your claims, which are frankly, shit.

      Clearly you haven't informed yourself about safety for cyclists, it is safer to run a red light for cyclist, observing no car is coming and yielding to pedestrians as it provides an advanced positions so improves visibility for drivers. Moreover, the start is the most vulnerable moment of bicycles, as they should be placed in front of vehicles at crossings and drivers are usually not willing to wait 10 seconds, they tend to accelerate before cyclist are already moving safely.

      04smallmj funny how I'm not talking about the Netherlands, I'm talking about the UK and its cycling society.

      Funny how the Netherlands is the safest place to ride a bicycle and has the highest number of people who cycle, yet has the lowest number of people wearing a helmet and/or wearing high vis!

      CurseTheseMetalHands a cycling helmet makes a huge difference to safety for cyclists! Wearing hi vis clothing is about prevention of accidents, the same way this AEB technology is too.
      I don't disagree with more segregation from motorists for their own protection, however studies have proven that doing so makes accidents more likely as drivers become complacent about people being safely behind barriers etc. The same way removing the lines in the middle of roads makes people more cautious and safer.
      Even with cycle lanes some cyclists choose to not use them, and, although lights are a legal requirement in the UK, a large population of cyclists don't use them.

      Very good initiative. I wish all this systems could be fitted as standard in any car in the next years.
