Over the past year, Tesla has been in the news quite a bit for their Autopilot malfunctions. Just yesterday, a Tesla driver in Laguna Beach hit a parked police car while using his autopilot. Tesla responded by saying that customers must “maintain control of the vehicle at all times.”
While the news continues to portray Tesla's autopilot functionality as dangerous, the DJ and producer Zedd, revealed that he once fell asleep driving home late at night with the autopilot on, and if it weren't for his car's beeping, he probably would have died.
Read the full story below.
Tesla Saves Zedd's Life
There’s lots of “bad” news about Teslas w/ autopilot crashing.
Just to show the other side too:
I once fell asleep driving home late at night on the highway (w/ autopilot on) and got woken up by it beeping + turning off music to wake me up. Would have prob been dead without it.
