My Near Scrape - Warning Sounds

Recommended Posts

Was driving along in the left lane of the A13 a dual carriageway and about to turn off at the next junction when all of a sudden a mad woman in a blue fiesta decides to change into my lane without noticing that I was there already.....lukcy for me I was returning home from a go-karting stag-do and was pretty sharp that day....I was able to swerve quite quickly and avoid the accident...but there was some kind of warning that started going off inside the car ( IS 250 SE Auto ) with some lights as well, The alarm noises and the lights stopped a few hundred metres down the road and in any case I was too busy honking the woman to take proper notice - even the subaru driver behind me was honking her.

Once I had calmed down a bit (after a few days) I was actually quite pleased that the car had handled so well in what was a potentially very dangerous situation (I was doing about 50mph), I am curious to find out what the lights and noises might have been though? Anybody?

cheers

It could be the cars' AI (I've been watching too many SciFi movies, and I love the Christine movie), but more likely it was the VSC kicking in...

PS - the cars handling is just so tight. It reacts very well to sudden changes, and you can really thread the car through tight A roads...especially in the Lake district...I love the Kirkstone Pass....my new IS takes it with such confidence

VSC mate. that's what saved you from swerving off the road completely..a clever piece of technology..

you must have been swerving quite a bit at pretty high speed to get that to kick in.
