Guilty Because You're a Human Being

Lets say traffic is backed up at an intersection, but a driver rapidly comming up on the intersection is distracted. They fail to apply the breaks, but their vehicle is equipt with an automatic braking system, so at the last minute the computer applies the breaks, bringing the vehicle to a screaching stop.

A driver in a vehicle behind the one with the automatic braking system can't be expected to see through the vehicle in front of them to see that traffic is backing up. And vehicle behind the one with the automatic braking system does not itself have an automatic braking system. So, dispite the best human reflexes, it rear ends the vehicle with the automatic braking system.

What we have is a human driver trying to compete with a computer controlled radar braking system. But the human driver is guilty by default because they rear-ended the vehicle in front of them. In other words, the second driver is guilty because they are a human being and not a computer controlled radar braking system.
