A new complaint has been filed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) describing what appears to be the first major accident involving Tesla using Full Self-Controller (FSD) band. Skin report, seen by The Verge, comes just one week after the company was pressured remember 11,704 vehicles Above FSD-related to glitch.
According to the report, the accident allegedly affected the FSD Model Y which crashed in Brea, California, on November 3 after accidentally crashing into the wrong lane. Tesla was the one who was hit, which resulted in the car being “severely damaged” on the driver’s side. No one was injured in the crash, according to reports.
Gizmodo reached out to both Tesla and the NHTSA to hear more about the report but never heard of it.
Motorists and regulators have been ringing bells throughout the year to warn Full Self- security.Driving. In July, Consumer Reports he warned FSD did not have as much protection as it did leading Tesla vehicles twisting, twisting bushes, and sometimes, running into parked cars. Consumer Reports warned that the decline in FSD security could lead to accidents not only for Tesla drivers not only themselves, but also pedestrians, cyclists, and other motorists.
A few months later, US National Transportation Safety Board chairwoman Jennifer Homendy criticized the company for allowing drivers to apply for the job before winning a commission. seen such as “production deficits.” Homendy challenged the defendants twice interview and CNBC at the end of October, and said Tesla’s description of FSD as “to guide yourself ” it was “misleading,” and probably encouraged users to use the service recklessly – for example, to, as the name implies, allow the car to drive itself.
As a reminder, Tesla has said he agreed His FSD only achieves Level 2 autonomy, which is assessed at a scissors at 1 to 5. To date, the Democratic Sens. Richard Blumenthal and Edward Markey recommended FTC to find out if the Tesla FSD segment is similar to a false advertisement.
All this I say, it was just around the corner that there was a major FSD-related accident, which Musk admitted in tto know earlier this year when he told drivers, “please be disappointed,” acknowledging that FSD beta brings “unknown risks.”
The big question now is the one that is coming. All indications have been that the growing demand for driver assistance and the operation of autonomous vehicles this year, but so far, no concrete has been done. It is certain that we will see more damage as described here that affects FSD as the beta grows to a larger audience. Any injuries that may result from this may be sufficient to compel the regulator to take action.
