Tesla Defends Autopilot Feature Amid “Growing Number of Crashes”

The New York Times reports on the “growing number of crashes involving” Tesla’s Autopilot feature that “fueled concerns about the technology’s shortcomings and could call into question the development of similar systems used by rival carmakers. And as cars take on more tasks previously done by humans, the development of these systems could have major ramifications – not just for the drivers of those cars but for other motorists, pedestrians, and cyclists.” According to the Times, the accidents “could threaten Tesla’s standing and force regulators to take action against the company.” The Times adds that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration “has about two dozen active investigations into crashes involving Autopilot,” and the National Transportation Safety Board “has said the system lacks safeguards to prevent misuse and does not effectively monitor drivers.” NHTSA so far “has not forced Tesla to change or disable Autopilot, but in June it said it would require all automakers to report accidents involving such systems.”

From the news release of the American Association for Justice.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
