That's a problem with tractor trailer design. They aren't made with the safety of other vehicles in mind, as the trailer is often just at about head height for most passenger cars.

Interesting to see that there have been fewer fatalities per mile in autonomous mode than for standard driving. I figured this would eventually be the case, but didn't realize it was already that good.
