The forward collision warning system seems to throw a lot of false positives. By the way, I think it is worth it for the 3 out of 10 valid warnings. But there are certain things that reliably and repeatably set it off. On the way home I drive an uncharacteristically narrow street for California. Would probably be more typical of streets in a place like England. This street is also sloped and bendy. If a truck or van is parked at the apex of a bend with no other cars around the collision warning system goes off. Every time. It does not happen as reliably with smaller vehicles and its less likely to happen if there are cars parked behind and in front. I know I can turn down the sensitivity of the system (I think) but I would rather not do that. Any thoughts?
