Yes automatic braking can be turned off if you don't want the feature on.

The actual way to turn off automatic braking depends on your vehicle but if you look in your vehicles owners manual it should say how to turn it off.

Turning off automatic braking is usually pretty easy to do.

Automatic braking does really work most of the time.

However you should still be alert when driving and never rely on your automatic braking to stop the vehicle in an emergency.

In the event a vehicle suddenly stops in front of you then you also need to stop the vehicle on your own even if you do have automatic braking.

The automatic braking could fail and cause you to crash so never rely on the automatic braking and still use your brakes manually like you normally would.

In testing of vehicles traveling at 45 miles per hour going toward a parked vehicle, the systems designed to stop completely reduced speeds by 74 percent, and successfully stopped 40 percent of the time

Automatic Braking which is also known as Autonomous emergency braking and also known as AEB, is a collision avoidance system which engages the main braking system in automobiles when it detects an imminent collision.

Automatic braking is a safety technology that automatically activates the vehicle's brake system, to some degree, when necessary.

Active crash avoidance technologies use sensors, cameras, radar, and LIDAR to detect vehicles.

Most systems issue a visual or audible warning when detecting an impending vehicle collision.
