I guess it had to happen sooner or later. I have had a fair few phantom brakes of varying degrees of strength and quite a fair few unnecessary shrieking collision warnings but first time I’ve had an unnecessary emergency brake applied by car. Was very slowly approaching a gormless white (actually silver) van man who had his door open restricting the passage for vehicles to pass. I was about a couple of meters away from the car door almost coming to a halt when the car threw a massive wobbly and applied the emergency brakes with some force. The white van man gave me a dirty look as he closed his door and the M3 tantrum gave me a little fright too. Much room for improvement with all this fancy auto collision detection/warning/avoidance stuff.
