Tesla Avois Collision with Jay Walker
We see a video of a Tesla vehicle narrowly avoiding a collision with a Jaywalker who was standing in the middle of the road. Tesla's safety features took over and swerved to avoid the pedestrian.
This is an example of Tesla's safety features at work and why a Tesla vehicle is among the safest that could be on the roads today.
Tesla's software has their vehicles being VERY cautious in driving, and this includes its FSD software that will one day allow a Tesla to drive itself without someone in the vehicle.

Tesla's Are the Safest Vehicles on the Road
Tesla vehicles have been praised for their advanced technology and safety features, making them some of the safest vehicles on the road today. Here is why Tesla vehicles are considered to be among the safest in the industry.
Autopilot and Advanced Safety Features
One of the main reasons why Tesla vehicles are considered to be some of the safest on the road is their advanced Autopilot system. Autopilot uses a combination of cameras, radar, ultrasonic sensors, and GPS to provide advanced driver assistance features such as automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, and automatic parking. Lately, sensors have been removed from vehicles, however.
In addition, Tesla vehicles also feature a number of other advanced safety features such as a reinforced passenger compartment, crumple zones to absorb impact Energy, and side collision avoidance. These features, along with the Autopilot system, work together to provide some of the highest levels of safety and protection for passengers.
Tesla's Electric Powertrain
Another reason why Tesla vehicles are considered to be some of the safest on the road is their electric powertrain. Electric vehicles have a number of advantages over traditional gasoline-powered vehicles when it comes to safety.
Here's a little known fact: electric vehicles have no tailpipe emissions, which means that there is no risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. Additionally, electric vehicles are also much less likely to catch fire than gasoline-powered vehicles.
The absence of a traditional internal combustion engine means that there is no transmission or drive shaft, which reduces the number of potential failure points in the vehicle. This, along with the lack of a fuel tank, makes electric vehicles less likely to be involved in a crash. Tesla vehicles will hold up structurally due to this difference from ICE vehicles.
Tesla's Crash Safety Rating
Finally, Tesla vehicles have also received high marks for their crash safety ratings. For example, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gave the Tesla Model 3 a 5-star rating in all of its crash tests. The Model S and Model X also received 5-star ratings in all NHTSA crash tests.
Tesla's safety ratings are a testament to the advanced technology and safety features that Tesla vehicles offer. They demonstrate that Tesla vehicles are some of the safest on the road, and that they provide a high level of protection for passengers in the event of a crash.
Tesla vehicles are considered to be some of the safest on the road due to their advanced technology and safety features, their electric powertrain, and their high crash safety ratings. With the Autopilot system, advanced safety features, and the electric powertrain, Tesla vehicles offer some of the highest levels of safety and protection for passengers. Additionally, Tesla's high crash safety ratings demonstrate that Tesla vehicles are among the safest on the road. As the demand and production of electric vehicles increases, the safety of these vehicles will continue to improve and will be a strong point for people to consider when buying a new vehicle.
These systems saved a human life, as demonstrated by the video here. Many lives are being saved by Tesla vehicles right now.
Do you believe Tesla vehicles are the safest on the roads? What could be done to make them more safe?
