1. A braking control system for a vehicle, said braking control system comprising:

  • at least one sensor disposed at a subject vehicle and having a field of view exterior of the vehicle;

    a control operable to control a brake system of the subject vehicle;

    wherein, after actuation of the brake system by an automatic emergency braking system of the subject vehicle, said control, at least in part responsive to said at least one sensor, determines the speed of the subject vehicle and relative speed of the subject vehicle to another vehicle or object, and, responsive to the determined speed of the subject vehicle and the determined relative speed, said control controls the brake system of the subject vehicle;

    wherein, after actuation of the brake system of the subject vehicle, and responsive to a determination that at least one of (i) a collision has occurred, (ii) the speed of the subject vehicle is greater than a threshold speed and (iii) the relative speed is greater than a threshold value, said braking control system is operable to determine if the driver of the subject vehicle is impaired; and

    wherein, responsive to a determination that the driver is impaired, said control controls the brake system of the subject vehicle and does not allow the driver to override said braking control system, and wherein, responsive to a determination that the driver is not impaired, said control allows the driver to override said braking control system.
