Tesla autopilot crashes police car in Connecticut

Tesla model S crash

A state trooper's vehicle get rear ended while he was assisting another vehicle this past Friday evening in Connecticut. The driver advised that he was checking on his dog in the back seat when the incident occurred. The driver was charged with reckless driving and reckless endangerment as he is still considered negligible and must still be engaged with the car at all times.

  • Tesla really needs to eliminate the autopilot feature. Their autopilot feature is incredibly dangerous. It was reckless to offer it to the public on production vehicles in it's current state. Tesla is 20 years too early.

  • It isnt the technology it is the idiots using it.

    They need to find a way for it to disengage for the slightest removal of both hands from the wheel.

    Rover in the back seat needs to find his own chewey toy. Let the driver drive the car.

    • I find it odd that the only crashed with autopilot are in the USA. None of the rest of the world crawls in the backseat to have a nap while driving? do they?

  • I knew they like publicity by crashing or exploding, but this is getting boring.

  • Tesla should be sued for applying immature technology on production models.
