forward collision warning system

page 16 of the features and functions guide that came with my 2018 phev says “the FCWS will not operate when the vehicle is traveling more than approximately 50 mph”. what’s up with that?

Basically, The distance needed to stop at more than 50 mph is greater than the distance the sensor can accurately project. Kia put that wording in to protect themselves from liability.
