    Maybe this is a good example for our backwards transport department to start approving the safety features this amazing car has...

    Perhaps if the automatic emergency braking was approved this could have been avoided.

    Just my 2 cents...

    Sad to lose another, they are still so precious, especially after the transport truck incident. Did the X hit the bus first or did the bus hit something first, not sure from Google’s translation.

    3 tonnes and Ferrari beating acceleration translate to a LOT of kinetic energy on impact...

    At least everyone seems okay. Greater AP functions need to be put on the fast track.

    Yep, glad they got lucky in this event and there were no serious injuries.

    Let us hope the Transport Department stops dragging their feet and wake up before someone loses their life.

    What will the Hong Kong government's excuse be if we have loss of life due to disabled safety features that can most certainly avoid a serious accident. It is only a matter of time...

    Let's hope they stop acting like a third world country and someone starts using some good old common sense before the Transport Department's incompetence is responsible for the loss of someone's life...
