Why Bruce Jenner Never Stood A Chance... Cadillac vs. Lexus Braking (my humble opinion)

Sad the way the world turns today... Privacy has gone out the window for celebrities (and even us).

Recently, Bruce Jenner, Olympic Gold Medalist rear ended a Lexus sedan causin... 

Very, Very Sad... But in my opinion almost unavoidable.

Basic information, as I understand it... Toyota Prius stopped short in front of the Lexus (118ft. 60 - 0 estimated for both)... Cadillac Escalade (144ft. 60 - 0 estimated) plus he was towing a light trailer. Add in human response time for the Lexus driver and Bruce Jenner and you have an unavoidable accident at probably three car lengths plus for Bruce Jenner. (two car lengths is accepted rule from my experience)

Modern braking systems with: Computerized Anti-Locking Brakes (sensors monitoring braking efficiency at each wheel), Brake Assist (automatically depresses pedal to floor on panic stops) and  Brake Distribution (applies the brakes to maximize stopping / steering control) have far exceeded human reaction / reflex times resulting in shorter and shorter stopping distances. Toyota / Lexus STAR Safety System.

New technology vs. old. 

To all my automotive (and other) friends... Leave some extra space between yourself and the driver in front of you.

DTG Note: Paparazzi involvement as a distraction may have additionally been a factor.
