'The federal government “misinterpreted” crash data pertaining to the Tesla’s auto steer function and misled the public about the safety of the Tesla Model S. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) exaggerated the safety data for this popular self driving vehicle, claiming that the Tesla “crash rate” drops 40 percent when the auto steer function is installed.
A more intelligent analysis of the data, conducted by the Quality Control Systems Corporation (QCSC), found that the auto steer function is 2.4 times more likely to cause airbag deployment. This is information that the NHTSA had, but it was not relayed until the QCSC filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to access the data. It turns out that the government lied about the safety of the auto steer function.
It should be noted that proponents of the “Green New Deal” believe the governmentshould phase out 99 percent of combustion engine vehicles and replace them with electric self driving vehicles such as Tesla’s. Electric and self driving vehicles will be promoted by democrats in the years to come as safety concerns for this mode of transportation are swept under the rug.
Government’s investigation into Tesla autosteer function turns out to be a manipulation of the data
In 2016, a Tesla was involved in a fatal crash in Florida. The Tesla Model S was cruising on Autopilot before the crash. The Tesla struck a tractor trailer and caused the death of the passenger, who trusted the vehicle’s autonomous function. The NHTSA had no choice but to investigate the incident. Instead of trying to solve the safety issues with the vehicle’s autonomous function, the NHTSA promoted the Tesla and exaggerated its safety in its final conclusion. These documents, now debunked, can be found on NHTSA’s website.'
