Tesla Autopilot system
The driver of the car, who posted the video to YouTube, said he didn’t touch the car in order for it to stop the accident:
Add your own honking and swearing.
Was travelling a little under 45 mph. There was some rain, but roads were pretty dry. I was watching stopped traffic to my right.
I did not touch the brake. Car did all the work. Sadly no audio, because I had an Uber passenger and Washington has strict privacy laws about recording conversations.
It’s massively lucky that there wasn’t another car travelling behind the Model S that crashed into the back following the sudden stop.
Drive safe, readers.
