Travelling home this afternoon. Following a slow moving line of cars at about 40mph at a reasonable distance. Somebody turned left 3-4 cars in front into a little used side road. The car immediately in front of my braked sharply and as I started to brake also, the AEB kicked in (brake disappeared from under my foot, the anti-lock brakes worked hard to avoid a skid and a lot of neck jerking as I came to a halt).
Thing is, up to the point where the AEB took over, in no way did I feel like it was necessary. I was braking comfortably and progressively to a point where I probably would have stopped a good 6 feet from the car in front. As it was I pulled up about twice that distance away. Was a bit of a shock actually. Glad the guy behind me wasn't too close.

It was in a Discovery Sport but same system software...
2nd try is a worry, i will not hit the car in front but the car thats slid to a stop behind i will just go backwards into that instead.

Is that the, if you hit me in the rear regardless of me going backwards its your fault claim. :eek:
