AnEasyTarget: Will the system be perfect? No, but it will be better than meat bags.


[[Citation Needed -- and not the bullshirt about miles driven on highways where no one normally crashes in the first place]]

As is Tesla's usual move, they are overselling this. This is going to get more people killed simply because the Musk can't bear to imagine the future might take a bit of time to get here.

Exactly.  If my choices are between a computer, and a human who probably is smoking, eating, drinking, drunk, high, half asleep, completely asleep, having a heart attack, playing with the nav system, playing with the stereo, playing with their cell phone, playing with themselves, yelling at the kids in the back seat, yelling at their spouse in the front seat, whistling to the cute girls walking down the street, and/or is just plain stupid, I'll take the farking computer, thank you very much.
