    Hi
    Well so far it has only happen under 50 miles hour which is good cause most drivers can adjust.
    First time was a construction steel plate over open hole on road at 20 mph nothing around just straight road. Sent back to frieghtliner they had for two weeks wabco told them to reaim the setting but that was all. Since got it back done same suff 4 more times. My other truck when it came brand new did it 3 times in one week .it is now back at freightliner now over a week. No one has answers.

    Good thing they have that technology down pat after all driverless trucks use similar tech lol.. I drove a Ryder rental for two weeks and it did the same garbage .. I tell you one thing this 20 plus year driver almost crapped when it did that with people tailgating me in Quebec .PS it earned me a one finger salute

    Mash the pedal 24/7..it will somewhat overide the retarded brake application.

    might have something to do with the big pile ups on snowy roads.

    I am training in a Ryder rental right now. It does the same thing when it catches a highway sign, it thinks its a speed limit sign and throws on the brakes, even without cruse control.

    Edit: Its a 2019 International prostar if anyone wonders what truck it is.

    Maybe the suspension (When your in the truck)is throwing it out of kilter?

    Well I've told my drivers to refuse to drive truck till fixed or removed . My company is behind me on this they demanding reimbursement for down time of units. Technology should not try and kill us we are more than just drivers.

    Can this thing be turned off by pulling a fuse or disconnect a wire harness?
    I was looking at some trucks with the system in place, but don’t want to deal with it if I can’t turn the thing off.
