If your are referring to the smart city braking, that only works in low speeds (<10mph) to prevent collisions at low speeds. The sensor senses whether or not you are paying attention and apply the brakes. Again the circumstances for this is less than 10mph and object (another car) is in front of you.

Worked for me, came to a grinding halt, buzzers and lights all going off, thankfully no damage.

My info shows 2-19 mph. I'd be very careful experimenting with it though!

I've never tried it but it's activated on its own a couple times. Twice when it thought I was going to hit the entry arm to my office garage and once when someone jumped in and cut me off.

How are you testing yours?

You might want to check out the infamous test of the Mazda Smart Braking system that Jeremy Clarkson tried on a CX5. (But don't try this at home!)

with people, why would you even have the slightest thoughts of driving at something in the hope that the car will stop.

Seriously WTF is wrong, have some responsibility for you own actions, do you know how much of a male appendage you would look like trying to explain that one to the authorities, oh yeah sorry but i thought I would try the automatic braking, but $#@* it did not work, now my car is stuffed.
