Tesla Safety Neglect Finally Goes to Court: The ‘Painful Thumb’ of US Roads

The quality of Tesla’s cars has been infamous for years, and has been getting worse, which should come as no surprise given how badly they treat human life (from their workers and customers to anyone in or around their product).

Now the top experts in car safety, who are finally getting some attention, don’t get hung up on the sad danger that a Tesla poses to everyone on the road.

“Tesla is like a sore thumb,” said David Friedman, who was a deputy and acting director for NHTSA from 2013 to 2015. [Heidi King, a deputy and acting administrator of NHTSA during the Trump administration added] “I really don’t like much of what Tesla has done, and at the top of the list with bright and bold lettering, Elon Musk’s habit of making false public claims… Overthinking about a consumer product can be very dangerous.”

Liar, clients of liar Elon Musk literally die in fires.

One of the reasons Musk has become a “painful thumb” for safety is explained by the bully’s do-gooder mentality: making mistakes so someone can stop him in court.

“In the United States, things are legal by default,” Musk said.

A public car company showing intent to commit crimes unless someone can catch it is the worst possible statement for a CEO.

‘Things’ are not Simply Legal by default.

In other words, cannibalism in the United States is legal by default. However, this does not mean that you will not be convicted of a related offense.

“We basically have the Wild West on our roads right now,” NTSB chief Jennifer Humendy said in an interview. Tesla’s publication of features marketed as autopilot and fully autonomous driving describes artificial intelligence experiments using untrained operators of 5,000-pound vehicles. “It’s a disaster waiting to happen.”

The Wild West has killed a lot of innocent people, especially because of men like Stanford when you think about it. I mean Silas Soule was A very noticeable exception Which became more like American rule but only long after that.

But I digress. Tesla isn’t a disaster just waiting, it’s already happened! Look at the death rate statistics and see if you can catch the disaster.

I have warned very loudly about this for at least six years in my conversations and writings. My main 2016 presentation about Tesla’s death at BSidesLV was literally called “The Great Disasters of Machine Learning”.

Elon Musk has long referred to the disaster as his business model and I saw it right after the first road fatality was reported on April 2, 2013.

Drifting across lines toward an oncoming traffic isn’t “legal by default,” yet Tesla seems to have to believe it’s a profitable business model for America, given that their cars have become infamous for doing exactly that.

April 8, 2022 (after nearly ten years) we see frequent safety failures.

However, things may change, as the court will finally help Tesla owners figure out how many “unsafe things are legal by default”.

A US federal judge’s ruling sets the stage for a trial in July, the first time Tesla has faced a jury in a car accident lawsuit. The electric car maker is facing a flurry of lawsuits over a series of accidents… Barrett Riley, 18, was driving his father’s Model S when he lost control and swerved toward a concrete wall of a Fort Lauderdale home. The car caught fire. Riley and his friend were killed in the passenger seat. The father, James Riley, claimed in a lawsuit that Tesla was negligent in removing the speed limiter from the car after his wife requested it be installed. The aftermarket device was designed to limit the vehicle’s speed at 85 mph. The family also argued that Barrett could have survived the impact of the collision but lost his life due to the intense flames, which the lawsuit attributes to a defective design in the battery.

The assumptions give an interesting framework for this court case.

Why was the default top speed higher than any so far legal Limit? The family tried to set a Safe Mode By requiring Tesla to enable the built-in speed limiter (“borrower” mode max. 85 mph). It is alleged that Tesla later removed the setting to bypass the parents’ express request, which directly led to the expected death of their child.

Tesla’s argument was about why parents intentionally disobeyed…because they could. Safety mindset at the young child level.

It may be useful to add two footnotes.

First, Tesla also worked with two unrepaired recalls at the time of its crash; It has nothing to do with the cause of death, but it still provides evidence that Tesla is not top of the line.

Secondly, the car constantly caught fire. The fire was burning when the police arrived. Then it caught fire again when it was put on a tow truck. Then it caught fire again when it was put into a second tow truck. Then it caught fire again when it was unloaded from the second truck.
