Honda has developed a system that reduces the risk of a rear-end collision. But should such an accident occur and the driver of another vehicle try to beat you up, Honda has a system for that, too.
Honda has developed a system that reduces the risk of a rear-end collision. But should such an accident occur and the driver of another vehicle try to beat you up, Honda has a system for that, too…
The Collision Mitigation Brake System developed by Honda consists of a front-mounted radar which warns drivers that an impact with a car ahead is likely by sounding a buzzer and tightening the seatbelt. It is set to début on the Japanese market during the year.
But in the event that a fender bender should occur, or a driver incur the wrath of another driver on the road for any other reason, Honda has developed a personal attack warning system to help protect drivers during a road rage attack.
The Honda RoadRage Personal Attack System is aimed primarily at women drivers, the elderly and other vulnerable individuals who frequently drive solo and/or who may be carrying valuables or goods.
The warning system is activated by pressing a concealed panic button mounted within easy reach of the driver. Once pressed, this button activates a 120 dB siren and causes the hazard lights to flash.
The siren is periodically interrupted with a loud voice message sounding: "Help, driver under attack, call the police." Should such a system be introduced on the South African market?
