The Uber-owned Volvo XC90 was claimed to be autonomous. That is tragically falsified by this on-board recorded video published by the Tempe Police.

The April 7 terror attack in Stockholm became more dangerous due to roadblockers in the Drottninggatan street. A strike by a 12000kg truck at 70km/h may eject an unrestrained 1000kg concrete block at 100km/h.
Well anchored stationary devices may stop the truck chassis, but if the barrier is too stiff, truck parts will become separate projectiles threatening people downstreams, like in the video below.
Modern Volvo Cars offer great driving pleasure and safety with the Driver Support option. However, functions contained vary significantly between series and Model Years. Submit your questions for me to answer with free clarifying tables.
The Driver Support option was introduced by Volvo in Model Year 2009 of the XC60 SUV. Since then, the DS package has been extended with new functions and improved performance varying between manufacturing weeks and model series. Fortsätt läsa “Volvo Driver Support Guide”
Hazard detection and safety development is threatened by driver-blaming use of recorded pre-crash data from cars involved in accidents. Inhuman system properties remain undetected, if reconstructions focus on individual guilt.
The public and authority attitude to accident “causes” seems embarrasingly equal to that of witchcraft centuries ago. Safety-irrelevant but illegal or immoral deviations from normal behaviour are alleged to blame an individual for accidental damage, though it is unintentional by definition.
Thereby, complex interactions and unknown hazards in the biological, technical and social systems may remain unknown to strike other individuals in various future combinations.
3) Road banking applied gravity side forces irresistible to (braked) front wheels.
Tracks in snow deviate to right (00:00:35) – though driver steers left:
see front wheel at 00:00:34, 35 and 38 seconds
4) Superior braking and side forces on tractor rear right wheel add to clockwise moment (turning tractor to right) irrespective of driver’s full left steering.
