EMERGENCY BRAKING DELAY IN BRAKE ACTION. WHEN THE VEHICLE AHEAD OF ME IMMEDIATELY HARD-BRAKED ON A YELLOW STOP LIGHT AT A "RED LIGHT" CAMERA MONITORED INTERSECTION (WESTBOUND ILLINOIS 38 AT SUMMIT IN VILLA PARK, IL) I HAD TO BRAKE HARD AND MANEUVER TO AVOID REAR-ENDING HIM. THIS WAS THE FIRST, AND ONLY, EMERGENCY STOP SITUATION I HAVE HAD WITH MY 2010 TOYOTA PRIUS. WE WERE TRAVELLING JUST A BIT BELOW THE POSTED 35 MPH LIMIT, AND I WAS FOLLOWING AT AN APPROPRIATE INTERVAL (3+ SECONDS OR ABOUT 3 CAR LENGTHS). THERE WAS ABOUT A 1 SECOND DELAY BETWEEN JAMMING ON THE BRAKE AND SIGNIFICANT BRAKING ACTION. I NEVER EXPERIENCED SUCH A DELAY IN MY ABS EQUIPPED 2000 CHEVROLET MONTE CARLO SS OR MY 1995 FORD WINDSTAR LX, SINCE THIS EXPERIENCE I DRIVE THE PRIUS WITH A GREATER INTERVAL, ALTHOUGH THIS MEANS OTHER DRIVERS REGULARLY MERGE INTO THE "SAFETY" GAP THAT I AM TRYING TO PROVIDE.
