Back in December, I was testing a Tesla's autopilot, and yeah, the things will try to kill you sometimes. Especially areas with high speed limits under construction, just don't even try. Take it off autopilot and steer.

It's not like you can squarely blame the victim or the algorithms, in most circumstances.

I'm currently of the position that sufficiently autonomous vehicles should come with free but mandatory afternoon of training on a track. If driving a freakin' fork lift requires a license, so should endangering others on highways at high speeds.

Absolutely agree.

The owner of the Tesla of course gave me a run-through, but what shocked me was how quickly I began to trust the autopilot. It was something I had to be vigilant against when autopilot was engaged, which kinda defeats the purpose.
