Some people appear more willing to make excuses for Tesla than accept they may have screwed up here.
Nobody is saying they didn't screw up. Obviously, they did. But that doesn't mean the answer is more bureaucracy and delay. I am sorry this guy is dead, but about 80 Americans die in traffic deaths EVERY DAY, and self-driving technology could likely prevent most of those. So we should be pushing this tech forward aggressively, and if there is a small bodycount along the way, we should be willing to accept that as the price we pay for the greater good. Many more lives will be saved in the long run.
I am sick of America's constant "can't do" attitude. I own a Tesla (actually, my wife owns it, but whatever), and part of the reason we bought it was to support a company that is actually getting shit done, and pushing things forward. I understand and accept that I am being used as a guinea pig.
