I’ve been fortunate to do a lot of things - paramedic, nurse and hopefully soon, a doctor.

I was a paramedic for 3 years while I was studying to be a nurse. I feel like I can do more so I am studying to be a doctor, an oncologist.

A Tesla driver turned on the car's Autopilot feature and took his hands off the wheel before a fatal crash.The crash, which happened March 1 in Florida, left the 50-year-old Tesla driver dead. Authorities revealed new details about the incident on Thursday. The driver turned on Autopilot about 10 seconds before the Model 3 sedan collided with a semi truck, according to the National Transportation Safety Board.

What percentage of autopilot cars have been in crashes this year vs. the percentage of human-driven cars?

"A separate vehicle safety report from Tesla shows that in the first quarter of this year there was one accident for every 2.87 million miles driven in which drivers had Autopilot engaged. For those driving a Tesla without Autopilot, there was one accident for every 1.76 million miles driven." Why you should read the article.

Here comes all the Republitards who obviously didn’t read the article, but are super “experts” on this issue. Autopilot is still far safer!

Why wouldn't anyone drive a car you don't drive? Lazy? Too much money? That's like going to a restaurant and having someone else eat your meal.

Tesla very clearly states that you need to stay alert and aware and be prepared to take over when autopilot is on. In my experience, the autopilot is much less aggressive of a driver than me and most other people (it’s super cautious changing lanes and following the car in front of it). The statistics speak for themselves, it’s safer than humans driving. Anecdotally, I find that to be true as well.

Misleading. The driver put it on Autopilot, then crashed into a semi 10 seconds later. That’s essentially expecting the car to pull off a miracle.

Can’t wait for those self driving semi trucks to hit the streets

Any airline pilot will tell you that regardless of whatever the autopilot does, you cannot surrender Situational Awareness. Autonomous driving modes should be banned as Situational Awareness changes in a heartbeat in a vehicle. A driver who looks up to respond to an imminent crisis, after having had their attention elsewhere, is going to need valuable moments to work out what is going on.

Never, would I ever have a car that drives itself.

Unless you can make it 100% effective, it should not be ready for the public.
