Tesla Crash

Wonder if the name "Autopilot" is misleading from a legal standpoint? Very fortunate no one else died. Interesting times we are living in.

Lady yesterday was driving her Tesla in the fast lane on autopilot while texting. I laid on my horn and gave her a look. She looked up at me and gave me the finger. :rolleyes:

I want to know how they knew definitively that he was playing video games?!

Cockpit video stored in the black box?

I think it's all speculation. The headlines are misleading but that is what news outlets do... The board will determine a cause of the crash at the hearing and make recommendations to prevent it from happening again.

Bottom line is that when driving in the supposed ‘self-driving’ mode, you can’t read a book, you can’t watch a movie or TV show, you can’t text and you can’t play video games.

Do you think he crashed in the game at the same time the car crashed ?... that would be weird.

Next time just pull in front and gradually slow down until her car stops.

I always fear that if I get into an accident and they see that I was streaming a youtube video while I was driving, that they'll assume I was watching it. I don't subscribe to podcasts, so, someone like Joe Rogan is on my radio in my car while the phone is in the cup holder... not in my hands.

An intern we had last summer was discussing her plans at graduation to get a job and buy a Tesla with the auto pilot feature so she has more time to play on her phone.

There are people out there that don't want to bother to drive. Meanwhile, i take spirited drives to relax. I have a love/hate deal with Tesla. Probably never own one unless i can find an original roadster for a few grand. Then swap in an LS or Hemi :LOL:

Also look up the guy who installed the old PC game DOOM on his Porsche 911

He set the controls to various inputs like steering wheel, gas pedal, brake etc. Pretty funny stuff as long as you are not trying to do it in traffic

edit - found it.
