  • Driver claims Tesla on autopilot when hitting 2 cars on I-95

Both police vehicles had their emergency lights on, with additional warning flares placed in the road to alert drivers.

A Tesla in auto-pilot hit the back of a state police vehicle in CT early Saturday morning.

State Police said troopers responded to Interstate 95 northbound early Saturday in Norwalk, Connecticut for a disabled auto on the highway and stopped their cruisers behind the vehicle, with their emergency lights on to await a tow truck. While waiting for a tow, the self-driving Tesla came down the road. Tesla cars seem to have an affinity for finding and smashing into police cars and fire trucks stopped doing their work on our roadways.

The driver of the Tesla told police that he put the vehicle on Autopilot because he was checking on his dog in the backseat, according to a statement from Connecticut State Police.

The operator, who was not identified, was issued a misdemeanor summons for reckless driving and reckless endangerment.

After striking the cruiser, the driver hit the disabled vehicle and continued at a slow speed until a trooper stopped him several hundred feet ahead, the post said.

The annual capacity at the factory in its first phase is expected to reach 250,000 vehicles, equivalent to about 4,800 a week. Tesla, led by billionaire Elon Musk, is planning a broad after-sales network in China.

While waiting for a tow truck to remove the disabled vehicle, a 2018 Tesla Model 3 was driving northbound slammed into one of the police cruisers and then collided with the disabled auto.

'Current Autopilot features require active driver supervision and do not make the vehicle autonomous, ' they said.

Connecticut State Police said: 'According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, although a number of vehicles have some automated capabilities, there are no vehicles now for sale that are fully automated or self-driving'.

Tesla's Autopilot has been in control of Tesla automobiles during numerous crashes, with multiple fatalities.

Tesla's website says cars with autopilot features still need drivers.

She said it is "damaging to public discussion" about advanced vehicle technologies to refer to vehicles now available for sale to the public using terms such as automated, self-driving, autonomous, on autopilot or driverless.
