When I die, I want to go like my Uncle George, peaceful in his sleep. Not like the 3 screaming passengers in his car.

Does the system include seat replacement when the driver poos and pisses himself?

Most of the truck drivers who deliver my freight are awesome, and have had close calls, because of some jackass on the road. Of course, when that occurs, my freight looks like a nuke went off in the trailer.

If the truckdrivers stop driving within 5 metres of the bumper from the car before them would help too...

Its loaded with 40 tonnes, it says it in the description on the youtube page.

As for cutting an engine off thats a bad idea in most lorries as the braking systems work a little differently (I can well imagine theres systems to prevent what I`m about to say if it does indeed cut the engine)

The brakes without power are on and turning the engine on takes them off, when you are hitting the brake, you are breaking the circuit and turning the servo on and off in very quick intervals, essentially a backwards variant of a cars ABS system. The issue with Turnign the engine off is that the brakes will apply solidly and potentially cause jackknifing

Feel free to correct me as I may well be wrong but this is how I`ve had it explained to me by a few Tesco Lorry drivers

I`m glad your badly-parker car is OK, but now I have a hell of a mess to clean off the inside of my windscreen. Just as soon as I can scrape myself off of it.

As someone who used to run trucks I love it, now do that with a 28 tonne load, on a wet road.

It`s a lot easier to stop them when they aren`t fully loaded.

I like how it waits till the absolute last possible second and then damned near locks up the brakes. It not only scrubs off the tires, it scares the living $#!+ out of both drivers and is likely to cause a rear-end collision if it`s being followed by another truck, not to mention that if it hits a slick spot, he`ll be 3 yards up the car`s ass before he can cinch the pucker string.

Wouldn`t it be better to have it slow down so as to maintain a reasonable following distance before it gets close enough to dry-hump your exhaust pipe?

"Nifty! It disengages the engine by itself? That`s a really good thing to have."

Nah, engine braking is obnoxiously loud. That`s just regular retardedly strong hydraulic brake pads. I`m sure these trucks have engine braking as well considering it reduces break pad and disc wear substantially, but you`d know if this were an engine break. Never seen a "No engine breaking" sign on a major street near a residential area?

What would happen if you threw a bag of glitter out of the lead car? Would it trigger the system?

@Lillim: yeah, it sacrifices the tires, but that`s a very expensive rig, eh? Not to mention the people in the car are happy about [email protected]

Impressive! That will save many lives, as long as the roads aren`t wet/slick.

That is impressive. I don`t know if big rigs rear end vehicles much, but I do know that throughout Europe, trucking is regulated and monitored better than here in the States- we could learn a thing or two by studying their methods.

Probably does a number on the tires- sounded like a couple would have flat spots on them, but no jackknife and no collision. Pretty awesome.
