Tesla's coverage of these incidents is a smear campaign.
GM, Ford and Chrysler experienced hundreds of vehicle accidents in the same time span.
In 2014, there were 32,675 deaths by vehicle incident. Not one of those is getting the same attention as these Tesla reports. Why?
Because the media is in the pockets of Big Auto. Every day in 2014, there were almost 90 deaths in all the other car manufacturers vehicles. I'm counting only two accidents in Tesla vehicles. That's actually quite good!
"Autopilot is an assist feature that requires you to keep your hands on the steering wheel at all times," Tesla said. Advocates of the technology are stuck between praising its capabilities and its potential while also warning that it's not a substitute for being awake, alert, and watching the road.
