My wife gets it from having too much uric acid. She takes medicine for it, I forget what kind, that helps with the gout.

...when you can answer forum questions from just looking in your medicine cabinet!

Allopurinol is likely what she was prescribed.

I should add that when I was treated for my gout many years ago, I told my doctor that I would self-amputate my toe(s) with a rusty hatchet if I ever had another occurrence because that would hurt less than the gout.....

Yes, I asked her, that's what she takes. She gets the high uric acid from kidney disease that's she's been dealing with for a few years.

Maybe there was a little critter on the road and your car was being humane.

Can you disable the braking feature of collision avoidance? After three emergency brake applications on my first day of commuting with my i3, I found the magic setting to disable the brakes and just have it beep when it thinks there's an impending collision.....

I don't know, I imagine I can but I wouldn't if it worked properly. I disabled the other nonsense like the lane departure because the only time I depart a lane it is to avoid a pothole or someone coming into my lane. I've only had one or two collision avoidance things, and it was going around a curve in the roadway where a car was parked. And it didn't slam on the brakes, it just gave me the red car alert on the screen.

It's a good thing I had the pole position at the light and took off when it changed. Had someone been right behind me, I think I would have gotten rear ended.

Lots of stories of accidents caused by automatic breaking as equipped cars approach tunnels or dark underpass. The cars brake unexpectedly and unsuspecting drivers following them rear end the cars that panic stopped for no reason.

That`s exactly what I was thinking.
Might be worth checking if you can disable it like vreihen16 did to his i3.
