In a bizarre twist I’m sure nobody saw coming, Tesla’s lawyer has very publicly stated that speed doesn’t affect safety of their cars.
A speed limiter is not a safety device. Is it all right if they crash at 85 mph instead of 116 mph?
Uh, yes of course less speed is better.
Is this a joke? Physics 101 aside, why on earth would a lawyer hired to defend Tesla tell a jury the product is unsafe regardless of speed?
If slowing down doesn’t make the car safer before it crashes into something, then nothing will.
These suicidal free speed extremists at Tesla might as well remove the speed limiting brakes and declare them not a safety device either.
