Tesla Autopilot Saves Life — Period. Ask this drunk driver.

Drunk driving is never recommended and is illegal. But the statistics surrounding this phenomenon suggest that it is not — it always happens.

The new video may not be the home page of most mainstream media news sites, but the clip that was across Twitter this week is Tesla Autopilot, as it doesn’t fit into the story of a killer car driving himself and killing people. Reminds me how useful NS is.

Perhaps someone needs to inform Senator Marquee and Senator Blumental of this and provide statistics. I’ll try. The two senators wanted federal regulators to take “corrective action” against Tesla to prevent misuse of the autopilot feature. The Verge It was reported after a fatal crash in Houston, where many claimed that the autopilot unmanned Tesla Model S had crashed. Those claims were later proved to be falseHowever, there was damage. The story was already burning on our phone like a digital wildfire beyond social media, and those who have a prejudice against Tesla refused to look beyond the headlines, and certainly the story. Miss the real truth of.

Tesla’s autopilot saves lives, and there are hundreds of cases that clearly show this.Thanks to both the Austin Tesla Club and the Austin Tesla Club, one case spread on Twitter a few days ago by word of mouth. Tesla saves lives.. The latter originally shared the video, but has since been featured on Twitter by many.

The incident happened in the Norwegian ski town. The “driver” leaned his head forward and laid sideways, making him think he had lost consciousness. Then I saw some other drivers chasing the car, driving some distance, and then the car stopped spontaneously. The car stopped in the tunnel and turned on the hazard lights. Some people parked next to the car and started knocking on the windows. They had no idea what had happened to the driver. When they couldn’t wake him up, they called an ambulance crew for help.

After the accident, Ski Eastern police shared details on Twitter. The 24-year-old driver was so drunk that he was drunk and fainted. Police added that they denied drunk driving, albeit with video evidence. This is actually normal — drunk people often run a dangerous risk and lie about it despite the opposite evidence.

The above tweet is interesting because it leads to the idea that it is Tesla’s responsibility for someone to get drunk and decide to drive first.Nonetheless, the idea that a drinking detector could be built into Tesla before allowing anyone to start the car. teeth It’s an interesting concept.

Recall that drunk driving has long been a major problem for Tesla’s existence, for the denials who believe that autopilot and FSD enable drunk driving. statistics The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that about 28 people die each day in drunk driving accidents in the United States alone. This is one person every 52 minutes. Statistics are for 2019. Remember 2019 when you continue.

NHTSA said the total number of people who died as a result of a drunk driving accident in 2019 is 10,142.

If you click here Looking at Tesla’s vehicle safety report for the fourth quarter of 2019, we can see that Tesla recorded one accident for every 3.07 million miles the driver used the autopilot. Tesla categorizes this quarterly and lists the 2019 statistics in order.

  • Q1 2019: One accident for every 2.87 million miles traveled by a driver using an autopilot.
  • Q2 2019: One accident for every 3.27 million miles traveled by a driver using an autopilot
  • Q3 2019: One accident for every 4.34 million miles traveled by a driver using an autopilot.
  • Q4 2019: One accident for every 3.07 million miles traveled by a driver using an autopilot.

Data from NHTSA It shows that 36,096 people were killed in a car accident in 2019. These deaths occur at a much shorter average mileage than the Tesla car deaths. Tesla’s autopilot saves lives. Limit.
