Former NHTSA Head: Tesla’s “Defective” Autopilot Uses Drivers As “Guinea Pigs”, Should Be Recalled
It’s called “beta testing” in tech parlance. Tesla, the car company born of crony capitalism is getting its customers to act as test pilots.
For months, we have been asking why the NHTSA has been dragging its feet in taking action regarding Tesla’s obviously mislabeled and misinterpreted driver assistance software, “Autopilot”, which continues to be at the center of numerous Tesla accidents reported on by the mainstream media.
Though the NHTSA has yet to take any meaningful action regarding Autopilot, they may be compelled to pay closer attention after comments made yesterday by a former agency official.
