My Wife And I Were Driving South On I-95 In Florida. Unbeknownst To Me, My Wife’s Blouse Caught On The Electric Emergency Brake Located On The Left Side Of The Center Console And This Momentarily Engaged It. Our Car Screeched And Lurched Forward As The Brake Tried To Engage. When She Finally Disengaged Her Clothing From The Emergency Brake Lever, The Car Returned To Normal Operation. Mind You All Of This Happened At 70 Mph! First, Why Would That Switch Be Active When The Car Is Moving? Unlike A Manual Emergency Brake Operated By A Lever, The Electronic Brake Goes “full On” At Engagement, Making It Particularly Dangerous If It Accidentally Becomes Engaged While The Car Is Moving, Especially At High Speed. Second, I Was Lucky As Traffic Was Pretty Light At The Time Of This Incident. If Someone Had Been Near To Me, Or Tailgating As Is So Ofter The Case On The Highway, We Would Have Had A Serious Accident. I Must Admit I Was Shaken Until I Finally Unraveled What Had Happened. I Love My ford fusion Hybrid And The Technology That’s Included In The Car. The Electronic Emergency Brake, However, Should Not Be Able To Be Engaged While The Car Is Moving. As An Example, The Seat Memory Setting Buttons Can’t Be Used While The Car Is In Gear. That Same Limitation Should Be Put In Place For The Electronic Emergency Brake Before It Causes A Serious Accident For Someone.
