'Elon Musk’s taxpayer-subsidized Tesla death traps are back in the news for trying to kill their drivers.
A man from North Brunswick, New Jersey, reportedly almost died after his rogue Tesla recently decided to crash off the highway – the vehicle’s so-called “autopilot” mode taking control and plowing right into several objects before coming to a sudden halt.
Local news reports indicate that the Tesla vehicle “got confused due to the lane markings,” which resulted in its inability to decipher between the highway’s driving lane and the exit lane. The driver of the Tesla says the “autopilot” split the difference and went down “the middle,” before veering off the highway entirely and crashing.
The driver says he tried to take control of the Tesla and override the “autopilot,” but that the vehicle “would not let him.”
While initial reports contained a statement from Tesla that “the driver always has control,” these statements were later removed without explanation.
This incident in New Jersey is hardly isolated, as there have been multiple reports of Tesla cars getting “confused” while running on “autopilot.” The vehicles apparently have a difficult time with highway exits, and often don’t know whether to keep going, take the exit, or go down “the middle.”
Tesla insists that its cars are completely safe, and that drivers are always able to override the “autopilot” function. But that, too, appears to be a lie, as cases of Teslas overriding their drivers are on the rise.'
