If you are about to be rearended, and you see it in your rearview what would you do?
You are on a leisurely Sunday drive when the traffic light up ahead goes yellow and then red. You stop your car and start waiting for the green light. After a minute you happen to look up and see a car in your rearview mirror speeding towards you with no signs of stopping. You have 7 seconds to act.
Ahead of you a stream of cars is crossing the intersection sporadically going around 40 MPH. You are on a two lane street. The lane to your right is empty. To your left is vacant, but it is oncoming traffic and traffic turning right from the perpendicular street of the intersection.
