Talking Re: Safety

Good point Bryce. I have both our Cars fitted with after market warning devices from "Mobile Eye" , which warn when we stray over lane markings. Also a warning when driving or approaching to close to a vehicle in front. "Mobile Eye" is the supplier to all the forward Collision devices now std. on most Cars. Most also apply the Brakes in an emergency up to certain speeds.
Had I had this device fitted to my 2013 Golf I would not have written it off. A loud incessant beeping would have alerted me to pay attention as I closed to quickly on to the stationary car in front. All Subaru's are fitted std. with the most advanced systems, and probably the pricier Mercs etc. And yes, a Volvo is probably the best protection of last resort. Smile as you go under !!
