Again ..we all test the situation at times..sometimes making poor decisions ..right or wrong

I simply voiced my appreciation for how well the car reacted to the situation
I can't argue with any of the above, very glad the brakes and your reactions saved the day

Good work in avoiding the collision. The other driver was a moron!

I always slow down at intersections, don't trust other drivers. My dad always says "A green light isn't an insurance policy."

I wonder what your Braking G force was... it may still stored.
I once encountered a stopped/stalled car on a highway. I was driving 70 mph and by the time I realized that the car was stopped I had to jump on the brakes and make an evasive maneuver. It was very close. I praised the brakes big time. I am certain that any other car would not have kept me safe. I think the G force was about 1.3 but going from memory here. Anyway, these cars are very well built. But one also has to be careful.
