According to the police, Tesla was at a given speed of 95 kilometers per hour behind another car. Following a vehicle ahead slowed to 88 miles per hour before changing lanes into another lane. Tesla is also slowed, and after changeover EN route ahead of the vehicle again started to gain until a speed of up to 95 kilometers per hour and crashed into a fire truck.

Heather Lommatsch, the driver, told me that she owned this car for two years and used the autopilot on a variety of roads. Based on this experience, it believes that automatic emergency braking system were to work in this situation.

We Remind you that the Tesla requires the driver to keep hands on the steering wheel during operation of the autopilot. Model S is equipped with a system warning the driver about the need to keep control over the movement. If the driver ignores these warnings, the autopilot system is turned off.
