This owner thinks it is perfectly safe to jam some fruit in the steering wheel to eliminate the "hold steering wheel" nags. He does not seem to be a complete idiot. The problem is that he has been mislead by the hype spread by Tesla and CEO Elon Musk. Despite several fatal crashes Musk is still spreading the message that NHTSA found Autopilot is 40% safer than a human driver. NHTSA has now revealed that the claim was based on Tesla's own (unverified) data. More people will die unless this uncontrolled and highly dangerous experiment is halted immediately. Please do something. Thank you. Deeply concerned citizen.
