Something must have kicked in, that looks more like a 30mph hit rather than a full 65mph. Still what was wrong with looking out the ....... window and perhaps seeing the flashing blue/red lights before the car detected an obstruction. :shock:

Yes, it definately looks as if the autobraking reduced speed before impact.
My own views. For better or worse :)

Commentary.....great for slowing a driver down when they think it's all about going fast! Take a look at 'Thinking Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman.

Some examples below,

'The gorilla study illustrates two important facts about our minds: we can be blind to the obvious, and we are also blind to our blindness'.

Kahneman, Daniel. Thinking, Fast and Slow (p. 24).

'The operations of associative memory contribute to a general confirmation bias'

Kahneman, Daniel. Thinking, Fast and Slow (p. 81).

Intense focusing on a task can make people effectively blind, even to stimuli that normally attract attention.

Kahneman, Daniel. Thinking, Fast and Slow (p. 23).
