New German Tesla Factory a Safety Disaster: 3X Worse Than Industry

Tesla factories in America have a reputation for safety disasters, significantly worse than any other car company.

“Everything started with ‘We’re going to automate so our injury rates can go really down because we’re going to be automated.’ Well, we’re not automated. We rely on humans to do a lot of the work,” […] “When I started, if they found one thing you were really good at, you were going to be there for 12 hours a day, five, six, seven days a week,” Ochoa said. The 31-year-old resident of Mountain House, California, ended up with carpal tunnel syndrome in both hands, which led to two surgeries and a permanent work restriction to avoid lifting anything heavier than 55 pounds.

Germany very foolishly allowed Tesla to build a factory there, and now it’s reporting the same problems from low or no safety.

When compared with accidents at Audi’s main plant in the Bavarian town of Ingolstadt, Tesla has about three times as many incidents per member of staff, Stern reported. “This is several times more than what is common in other car companies,” said Mr Schulze.

Tesla promises to automate to avoid the cost of human safety training, then they avoid the cost of automating because they find it easier to treat workers as disposable.

The end result is Tesla dumps cars out with little to no quality control and no way to improve.

US Courts Award Tesla CEO a Loophole to Promote Dangerous “Autopilot” Fraud

This decision by courts seems bonkers, but also probably heavily corrupted by a CEO who allegedly flaunts himself as untouchable and above the law.

The stakes are higher in the trial this week, and in other cases, because people died. Tesla and plaintiff attorneys jousted in the runup about what evidence and arguments each side could make.

Tesla, for instance, won a bid to exclude some of Musk’s public statements about Autopilot.

The problem is literally that Elon Musk regularly promotes Autopilot as far more capable than what Tesla owner documents say. If there were no such warnings contradicting his unfounded toxic optimism, skepticism would set in and people would be safer.

His false promises are so powerful because he puts a warning in the car that he can undermine. He engages in an oppositional propaganda tactic, a known psychological manipulation, to undermine natural skepticism and convince people to ignore Autopilot safety warnings.

You can’t put half of his intentionally truth-destroying method on trial and make any sense of it. And he knows this, which is why he constantly says things like he will/won’t do things or he can/can’t achieve things, or simply things are/aren’t true. Split them apart and he will jump to whatever means he gets away.

This is an amorphous, ambiguous gambit to always win and never be accountable no matter how heinous a crime. It’s often known as Advanced Fee Fraud, where the victim is blamed for greed when they had too much faith.

Let me explain in terms of very well documented history, once again, what such a carefully curated disregard for law and order looks like.

A swastika.

It’s Nazi doctrine to both destroy and control truth, demanding obedience to whatever truth serves the Nazis best and exclusion of any statement that could make them accountable.

The Nazi party in 1933 literally said “at least we don’t use the guillotine” on the eve of ordering guillotines to murder 16,000 political opponents including members of courts who foolishly didn’t stop them sooner.

Goebbels loved the concept of truth, craved it, but then defined it as a thing that could be said by Hitler at any point and time with no accountability.

Does it make any sense for a court to exclude Elon Musk’s version of “truth”? Why not hold him accountable? His statements were fraudulently promoting Autopilot, intended to sway public opinion. Seems kind of relevant in a trial about “authoritative” Autopilot statements used to sway public opinion, right?

It sounds like if a Nuremberg court excluded Hitler’s “arbeit macht frei” statements about labor (e.g. planned mass deception for genocide) in a trial about the Nazi labor camp fraud that instead killed millions of workers.

Latest German Tesla Crashes as Bad as Ever

One of the big hyped promises of Tesla since 2013 was the more cars, the more miles, somehow the better their safety.

That was fraud, because it’s been the exact opposite, and Germans are starting to figure it out.

The more Tesla, the more disasters.

Germans unfortunately have been finding out the hard way that the risk of a new Tesla crashing is as bad as ever if not getting worse.

Of course a Tesla on German roads makes about as much sense as ordering a Coors Light on tap in Munich. What happened to German laws regulating quality?

…beers like Miller Lite, Coors Light and Bud Light are the result of the industrialization of beer and a shift away from brewing’s artisanal roots. Traditional brewing processes have been abandoned, aging times have been shortened and cheaper ingredients, like corn, have been substituted.

Traditional processes have been abandoned, times have been shortened and cheaper ingredients have been substituted… sounds like copy pulled directly from Tesla’s marketing department about their disasterous German factory.

Tesla needs to face a simple ban, if there was ever a corny car that justified a Reinheitsgebot. Even the infamous Trabbi had higher standards.

Anyway, setting aside the obvious Himalayan blunder of a “new” car factory in Germany full of “misdocumented” eastern european workers who lack freedom…

Just a few weeks ago a Tesla outside Berlin experienced sudden unattended acceleration, speeding at 100km through a 30km zone before destroying itself.

And now a Tesla outside Berlin has crashed into the back of a truck, ripping its own roof off and injuring occupants.

These are two of the signature failures of Tesla, which have become known as intentionally unfixed since at least 2016.

MI Tesla Kills One. Dodge “ScatPack” Totalled From Behind

Some details emerging from a new horrifying crash are different than most Tesla crashes, and yet sadly overall it is the same story.

Driving his Dodge Challenger ScatPack, which he certainly loved as much as he loved working with patients at Newman Family Dental, Dr. Clifford was on the road. However, on this ill-fated day, tragedy struck as his car was involved in a collision with a Tesla Model S.

Here’s what’s different: Every report I’ve seen makes very special mention of the model of the victim’s car. That ScatPack seems to be revered in Detroit news reports almost as much as human life.

The term ScatPack is what Dodge brands its cars that can run the quarter mile under 14 seconds. More importantly, it’s a nod to some specific Motor City history. ScatPack established a club for Dodge-enthusiasts to come together and honor hard-working, hard-charging dreamers. It meant paying a couple bucks to become a card-carrying member, with regular magazine and newsletter updates, a bumper sticker and colorful patch.

ScatCity epitomized 1970s pride in American muscle car community. This car probably meant the world to its owner, his family, their neighbors….

The crash scene suggests the Tesla flew at extreme speed southbound through an intersection, like a cruise missile straight into the rear of the ScatPack.

The ScatPack owner worked in a nearby office on northbound US-24 and was returning home. It will be interesting to find out if he made a left turn onto west-bound Carlysle and then onto south-bound US-24. In other words he may have pulled out and then turned in front of an oncoming Tesla that blew a red light and blindly slammed into him.

That would help explain why the Tesla traveling south-bound at extreme speed struck it from behind… related to the well-known “Autopilot” design flaw that fails to calculate for cross traffic.

Here’s what’s the same: the Tesla “Autopilot” keeps fatally slamming into vehicles slowly pulling out onto a highway. Impact with such high speed difference is a known long-standing design flaw — unfixed since 2016 — that begs why Tesla is still allowed to operate on public roads.


Authorities say that despite emergency response the ScatPack owner died soon after due to a “medical episode”. I wonder if he had a heart attack when he realized the loss to ScatCity.
