So you are stating TSLA's intended
punishment for disobedience of the autopilot is death...?
What a ridiculous statement but expected. Clearly there are many factors involved here and lots of FUD and speculation. Besides your repeated Tesla trolling here it is also very curious that the family reportedly sated the driver had repeatedly complained about issues at that spot before with AP and he then uses the autopilot knowing this, and on top of that uses it as NOT intended and with his hands off the wheel further ignoring the second waring? What if the person fell asleep at the wheel? Clearly they were not paying attention to a "known" issue area as reported.
What happens if you let go of the wheel on Nissan Pro Pilot and don't grab the wheel again and crash? Would that be the intended consequence for disobedience? Would the Nissan take over and drive you to safety? Or do only Nissan's disclaimers and warnings apply to common sense driving. When I think out the other AP cases and circumstances for blame it raises many questions.
That video also means nothing and proves nothing about this situation. The logs do give many facts to the situation as they have in past cases.
