On September 11, 2015, the New York Times, published an article regarding an agreement among ten major automakers to make automatic braking systems standard in all vehicles. While there was no timetable set for implementation of the systems, once they become standard they may significantly affect civil cases. Many civil cases center on auto liability and a vast majority of those cases deal in rear end auto accidents. The automatic braking systems are envisioned to protect against all collisions, but are expected to virtually do away with rear end accidents.
