Collision warning saved my life, and possibly time in Jail!
 
So i was on my way home a few days ago, extremely tired from a very long week, mind was in outer space, when all of a sudden the Jeep beeps like crazy at me, i look forward and slam on the brakes, before i knew it i was almost kissing bumpers with the car in front of me. Where does the jail part come in you may ask? The car in front of me was a cop. No joke. Thanks Jeep for keeping me out of the pokey!

Lmao I'm surprised he didn't stop you anyway for flying up on him and slamming the brakes

I actually saw him playing with his laptop once i stopped, so he definitely wasn't looking...

I'm sure the cop would have found a reason, they are good at that...

I'm so glad I got the ACC option in my Overland, so far no warning bells, but I see the value in it for sure. Thanks for the story, even though I hope I don't have the same thing happen!

That option definitely paid for itself :)

Volvo has their "City Safety" collision detection technology which automatically applies the brakes in this type of situation. (Other manufactures have it, I'm sure).

Should be standard on all vehicles.

could of been avoided by paying more attention to the road?
