Enough of this bullshiat, Volvo.  You've been promising to sell a diesel-electric model for at least five years now.  So where is it?

Saving cyclists' lives seems kind-of pointless to me. Who benefits?

OK, so it spots them. Now they need a system to target them and eliminate them.

The reason why Volvo is concerned about pedestrians is because of a new trend in car safety. In the Euro ncap, a score is given for pedestrian safety, and since for volvo being on top of any and all safety tests is primordial, it is normal for them to innovate in that area.
Probably will cost 2k as an option.

We walk in L.A.  Granted, it's a very walkable area of the city (Brentwood) and parking spots are sufficiently rare around here that it's just not worth it to drive to most places in the 'hood.
