An advanced radar system will constantly monitor the road ahead, and if you approach a vehicle too quickly or if the vehicle in front reduces its speed, you will be notified by both an audible and visual warning. If you do not slow down, the vehicle will apply the brakes automatically to avoid or reduce the impact of a potential collision.
