    Heading to my car at one of our stores I witnessed exactly why more robots are becoming standard equipment in our cars.

    One driver was backing out of a stall while another was driving too fast (IMO) for a parking lot towards that car. The way the drivers' heads jerked like passengers with braking, and surprise look one had said the technology worked.

    The latest Consumer Reports covered the increase in accidents and especially pedestrian deaths and in that I was disappointed to learn the popular GM and Stellantis (Jeep, RAM) larger vehicles don't have that and only some of the Ford light trucks do. I thought the 2022 AEB standard was all cars and light trucks. Just work place safety is a good argument for the technology.

    After seeing that parking lot incident I'm telling my family to stop disabling the rear warning and lane warning in what's supposed to be my car.
