Tesla and the guy dies

on Sun Apr 08, 2018 5:32 pm


I was wondering if this is the first person who as ever died in a Tesla. The reason I ask is they are supper strong. They hit a pole the pole breaks, they crash in to a house the house breaks etc..

Then this story managed to bring the share price of Tesla stock down so much.

Was a strange one in my opinion.

Yes it was supposed to be on auto pilot, but how did they know, the driver told them just before he died ?

They'll be able to intergate the computer system to determine what mode the car was in.

Share price falling is silly. Plenty of normal cars crash every day and no one bats an eyelid.
This is the problem this technology is going to have, it's going to be held to a much higher standard and those who want to see it fail will be waiting to jump all over it.

Exactly - people die on the roads everyday - but involve a Tesla and there is uproar.

The last I checked though - share prices were unaffected ....

Share price is still very strong in the scheme of Tesla

this was because the car was in Autonomous mode though, right?......

Yeah, although the car apparently gave a few warnings for the ‘driver’ to take control ....

Very avoidable death unfortunately.

The cyclist that walked out in front of that car, well that might not have been avoidable even with a human in full control.
