Earlier this month, Tesla launched Autopilot system, and from that moment on many people who own Tesla keep on claiming how this system helped them to avoid dangerous driving situations.
One of Tesla owners, Uber driver Joh Hall shared the video on YouTube that shows how the system helped him to avoid a collision with another car. Hall owns Tesla Model S P85D which he was driving on State Route 99 north of downtown Seattle, when right in front of him an oncoming vehicle made a sharp left turn.
“I was watching traffic to my right and that Honda turned right in front of me. I would have smashed right into him had the car not hit the (brakes) for me,” Hall told GeekWire.
This is what Hall wrote in the YouTube video description:
“Was travelling a little under 45 mph. There was some rain, but roads were pretty dry. I was watching stopped traffic to my right.
I did not touch the brake. Car did all the work. Sadly no audio, because I had an Uber passenger and Washington has strict privacy laws about recording conversations.”
