Tesla in Autopilot self-driving mode crashes into parked police cruiser

Tesla in Autopilot mode crashes into parked Laguna Beach police cruiser

Tesla has said the use of Autopilot results in 40 percent fewer crashes, a claim the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration repeated in a 2017 report on the first fatality, which occurred in May 2016.

A Tesla sedan set to autopilot mode crashed into a parked Laguna Beach Police Department vehicle in Laguna Beach, Calif., authorities said.

A Tesla vehicle with its Autopilot system activated crashed into an unoccupied, parked police SUV in California, according to reports. The Tesla driver, identified only as a 65-year-old man, sustained minor injuries.

The driver told police the vehicle was operating on autopilot at the time of the crash.

The Tesla driver had minor injuries, and the officer was not in the police SUV at the time of the crash.

[Police Sgt. Jim Cota] said the luxury electric auto crashed in nearly the same place as another Tesla about a year ago. "Why do these vehicles keep doing that?" "It's super messed up that a Tesla crash resulting in a broken ankle is front page news and the ~40,000 people who died in USA auto accidents alone in past year get nearly no coverage", Musk wrote about the Utah crash on Twitter.

DONE DEAL? Man Utd meet buyout clause for Porto defender Diogo Dalot
The need for reinforcements as far as the wide defence is concerned is evident at Old Trafford . His primary position is right back, but he can play left back if needed as well.

Tesla's Autopilot is a semi-autonomous system that enables vehicles to drive themselves in certain conditions.

"Tesla has always been clear that Autopilot doesn't make the vehicle impervious to all accidents, and before a driver can use Autopilot, they must accept a dialogue box which states that 'Autopilot is designed for use on highways that have a center divider and clear lane markings'".

Autopilot has been put under a microscope after other incidents involving the technology. It also insists the accidents are primarily the result of human error, not the autopilot feature itself.

Earlier in May, the NTSB opened a probe into an accident in which a Model S caught fire after crashing into a wall at a high speed in Florida.

Tesla's Autopilot feature is an advanced driver-assistant feature on the Model S and Model X that features the ability to change lanes, lane centering, adaptive cruise control, and more.
