I guess the driver here was the same driver that recorded the near miss with the utility truck posted here before. Makes me wonder if he wasn't a little to dependant on a driving aide. I thought the utility truck incident was an easy thing for a human to spot, evaluate, and avoid without the drama assigned to the "near miss" of the autopilot oblivious to dangers until the last moment. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for this driverless car stuff, just pointing out Tesla should do less bragging about it, and humans need to be more aware of the limitations. The pioneers always take the arrows.
