Prius Too: Now, I am Also Getting Concerned
I wasn’t really worried until this latest recall news on Toyota Prius has come out. Software problems? Brake problems? This is an eerie reality to android cars in Hollywood movies that take control of the driver and kill him/her. Stopping distance is what I am currently covering in the transportation engineering class I am teaching. Well, this Toyota executive thinks that problem brakes do not increase the braking distance requirements for Prius models. I am not sure why it will not. When the whole driving behavior is altered due to faulty braking, not just the braking distance, but also the reaction time is altered. This is a disaster.
