Sector in which City Safety can detect oncoming crossing vehicles.
For City Safety to detect an oncoming vehicle on a collision course, the oncoming vehicle must first enter the sector in which City Safety can analyse the situation.
The following further criteria must also be fulfilled:
- your car must be travelling at no less than 4 km/h (3 mph)
- your car must turn to the left in markets with right-hand traffic (or to the right in left-hand traffic)
- the oncoming vehicle must have its headlamps switched on.
- The "City Safety in crossing traffic" function is supplementary driver support intended to improve driving safety – it cannot handle all situations in all traffic, weather and road conditions.
- Warnings and brake interventions due to a collision risk with an oncoming vehicle often come very late.
- Never wait for a collision warning or for City Safety to intervene.
- City Safety is not a substitute for the driver's attention and judgement. The driver is always responsible for ensuring the car is driven in a safe manner, at the appropriate speed, with an appropriate distance to other vehicles, and in accordance with current traffic rules and regulations.
