Oh, I agree. From what I've seen on the web what I see in FL would be considered polite driving in Russia.

No. Horrible Rhode Island drivers, come to Mass to punish us, because we steal their women.

Seriously. German drivers can be jerks as well. But then, will Teslas Autopilot EVER understand this behaviour below?

Stuff like this is why I'm skeptical of all the talk about autonomous vehicles being "just around the corner".

This technology is pushed out to the public by overly optimistic people like the kind who work for guys like Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos, and it's not ready yet.

I suppose the good thing about it is that they are gaining real-world experience with it in the field. Unfortunately, I and others whom I care about are in that field with these cars everyday.

It's unrealistic to market something like this, name it an "autopilot", and then expect drivers not to fail to pay attention. Especially in a world where smart phones exist.

As for people not understanding the limitations of the tech, I am reminded of this old classic:

That can just mean that no dashcam footage survives an FL crash.
