Consumer Reports is calling on Tesla to "disable hands-free operation until its system can be made safer."
I'm calling on some drivers to disable hands-on operation until they can be made safer drivers.
A town in which I once lived built a cable TV system somewhat similarly. They contracted the building of the infrastructure and granted the builder the first year of service. After that, potential service providers (only one per year for all users; programming service plus hardware maintenance for the system) competed for the annual contract. Annual competitions meant that that town's cable TV system offered far more at significantly lower prices than any other municipality around. The infrastructure belonged to the city, and contracts to upgrade/expand it could be set up when necessary. I've never seen a better model for that, and Ammon looks to have implemented a modern equivalent for Internet service (instant competition being possible due to technology improvements).
A word of warning for Ammon: that town's system changed to an inferior model due to corruption—large cable companies bought the city council (to change the rules) and especially the state legislature (to preempt such an arrangement). Do everything you can now legally to make a poison pill of the whole thing for any potential predators. That is, make it so it cannot be profitable within any reasonable time frame to discourage those guys from buying it away from citizens.
Seriously. This is the only information I found in the post:
...6x6 100% electric drive, zero idle, many times cleaner than diesel engines, half the fuel cost per mile compared to diesel, 3,700 FT. LBS Torque, 2,000 horsepower...
Retirement means that when someone says "Have a nice day", you actually have a shot at it.
