Wow. Seriously would not want to be associated to that.

This technology was obviously created for female drivers.. but they had to include some men in the commercial so it wouldnt appear sexist.

I think those commercials are pretty accurate. Rich blonde mother driving a Benz in northern Cali and not paying attention to the road sounds about right.

Holy shit.

You need this technology to save yourself from drivers who are so bad they need this technology. So that makes you one of those drivers... and you need to save yourself... from yourself?

Got owned by crappy drivers...an m3 smash into my 1er 2 years ago...he wanted to race me on the highway he lost it on a straight go figure. I ride motorcycles too so yes I want to be protected from idiotic cagers. Yes I hate nannies my traction aid buttons all get worned out in my cars because it's the first thing that I turn off even before puting my belt on.I cant stand nannies but with the snow that melted and warmer weather that's starting around here I see more and more idiots on the roads if those nannies can save me from them drifting into me or slamming my car from behind because they're texting with their stupid Iphones or eating hamburgers then why not.

Proof:look closely you can see the kidney grill shape in my door along with the lower bumper section of an e46 m3....those nannies could have saved my ass from this idiot. This guy it me at about 110 KM/H on the highway hit he could have slammed me into the cement wall. Needless to say that the My car is better driver than I am Benz could have save that clown from hitting my car.

I like the idea that Mercedes is willing to help save the rest of us. They aren't really trying to save those idiot drivers in the commercial. Why should they? They already bought and paid for the car, and so the profit's been met. Mercedes is just trying to save us as their potential future customers. Smart company.
