I really don't know how the front parking sensors work on a Volvo but if any of you have ever owned a Porsche or a Mercedes you will know how great their systems work.
They are activated all the time but are made in a way where the sound only activates when you are getting within a certain distance of an object.
Funny enough this distance is just slightly closer than your normal distance to the car in front of you at a junction or similar.

Of cause I'll live with the way BMW have done it but it's just a pain to push the button every time now that I know it can be done better differently.
