“Tesla Tried to Kill Us Today”: New Owner Posts Video of Autopilot Danger

A new owner seems surprised that Tesla “auto steer” is unfit for use. A video was just posted to YouTube claiming Autopilot tried to kill them.

The failure of sensors is easy to explain when watching the video. A concrete barrier suddenly shows reflective yellow safety stripes to the left, while the left shoulder is a solid yellow line.

The Tesla abruptly veers left across the solid yellow into the shoulder towards the barrier, thinking that’s the new lane because it falsely registered the vertical reflective concrete barrier stripes as a horizontal road surface marking.
