Volvo S60 fails safety test

Volvo announced the release of a new safety system designed to stop automaticaly the vehicle when encountering an iminent obstacle. Volvo mounted such a sytem on one of its models, S60 and organized a test in the presence of the media. The S60 with a dummy inside was directed towards a truck at a speed of 35 km/h but surprisingly the car did not stop and crashed into the truck. It was a funny situation especialy for the journalists present at the spot. The company officials blamed the engineer who prepared the car for the test. They considered that the failure occured due to a malfunction of the battery which was supplying the safety system. This was just a test and hope that in reality the new system will work.
