Federal authorities also need to investigate this crash. The untampered data logs need to be accessed before Tesla can compromise/falsify/destroy or spin the data. The data should be made public as also the details of the official governmental investigations. Tesla cannot be trusted.
Was the “autopilot” active; if so why didn’t it prevent this accident?
Was “automatic braking” active; if so why didn’t it prevent this accident?
I think the safety hype from Tesla, Elon Musk and his suck ups is resulting in unsafe reckless/inattentive driving. That aspect also should be considered in any investigations like this.
I suspect skimping on sensors and an overconfidence and over emphasis on software and over emphasis advancing AI chips is contributing to Tesla accidents like this. I think Tesla is poorly managed, thus resources are squandered and misappropriated, thus safety is compromised.
- Was the Tesla driver intoxicated? If so I think the alcohol and drug abuse of the Tesla culture may be a contributing factor to these types of accidents.
Tesla collides with fire truck in San Jose, leaving 2 hurt
Tesla culture often is monkey see, monkey do. Elon Musk reportedly took his hands off the wheel of a Tesla during a TV interview to demonstrate the “autopilot”. He was violating Tesla safety protocol. Reportedly when Elon Musk made his tweet “funding secured” he was alone driving his Tesla; indicating that yet again he was unsafely inattentive of his driving.
Leaders are supposed to set a good example. Elon Musk sets a bad example; and his mindless minions follow his bad examples. That’s one of the many reasons Elon Musk is a horrible leader and his cult is a horrible cult.
(Satirical) Does Tesla hate fire trucks?
