    Default Large animal warning system good for the DR

    Volvo is introducing a new feature, large animal warning system in their latest cars. Too bad most of the DR can't afford a new Volvo because the feature would be useful here.

    Mauricio. The system works fine with large animals. But not with large people.

    I don't care what you say, that was a failure of the Volvo system.

    The largest animals in the DR are the Moto and Publico Drivers... Not sure if they need protection...

    If I remember correctly, that model didn't have the system installed. It was all over the news, both in the DR and the US.

    i think it was a complete brain failure of people who decided to try it out without checking whether the car has the system in the first place.

    in any case there are other cars that have automatic breaking system too.

    And of course not checking to see if the car had the automatic braking system was nobody's fault.
