So your light turns green...you get rear-ended into a head-on collision...all at speeds under 2nd gear...

How is this not driver error

Nothing you have described in the accident is a fault of the car. If you would have been in a manual and missed a shift, the exact same scenario would have played out. Your car did not cause the accident, and trying to blame the car is retarded. If you got hit from behind, it's his fault. If you get pushed into oncoming traffic, it's your fault for not controlling the wheel and crossing lanes.

And the fact that you would have been dead if the oncoming traffic was at speed? Wouldn't you also have been at speed, because your light wouldn't have been red? Your story has more holes than Swiss cheese. Or any other cheese that has holes.

I give you this
