Is that a wild guess or is that a computation based on past experience?

new mercedes tech

I was pleasantly surprised this morning on my "spirited" commute via the bqe. Coming up behind a Mercedes SUV, I saw a little red triangle appear in the side mirror of the side I was just about to pass. It went away when I passed by.

Seems they installed some proximity sensors to the rear bumper corners that warn you before you change lanes, or if, as in my case, someone else is occupying that space already.

Meant for motorcycles and lane filtering? Probably not, but I'll take it!!

I think a lot of cars have that. I had a rented Mazda pseudo SUV and it did it as well. It also made an audible sound in the cabin.

Eventually, they'll just assume the technology is broken, and merge into you.

I kinda like the NYC traffic cops. They let me lane split all weekend long when I visited. It that the norm?
