Re: Self-driving Uber Car Total Disaster

Also apparently this week another Tesla ploughed while on autopilot.
Bizarre accident. The driver appears to have been using the car as one would ride a train. With no regard to the conducting of the vehicle!

Also, try to keep your personal effects (and/or appendages) from getting hung up in the controls.
