That nasty shit don't even hafta see nothin either. it'll slam on the brakes for no reasonThe Bendix crap in that KW I drove last weekend would reduce the cruise if I was gaining on someone. Without the cruise on, it would just start beeping at me.
I don't know if it would actually apply the brakes because I never let the truck get that close to anyone. It was only 3 days, so I didn't have any un-preventable (on my part) brake check incidents like deer, cars cutting me off and standing on the brakes while aiming for an exit ramp, etc. Every time a car did cut me off real close, the Bendix system did nothing but display their speed and my following distance, because they were going faster than me. It doesn't care if you're 6 feet from the back of a car as long as the car is moving faster than the truck is.
But I wouldn't want any electronic nerd equipment having the ability to apply the brakes if I'm driving in snow. Or empty in the rain.
