People who hold the wheel like that should will likely be killed.

Diesel mechanic gets that deer-in-the-headlights feeling.

...Elon Musk said that it was going to
be either all or mostly solar-powered
which is gonna bring the operation costs
down even lower as if it's not hardly
low enough
and the aerodynamics the
Tesla semi had a coefficient of drag
less than a Bugatti which has never been
done usually a semi you're just driving
it's like driving a giant parachute down
the road there's zero aerodynamics so
I'm excited but I'm also also worried...
A Bugatti is a pretty low bar (0.70 or so Cd) and a truck doesn't have zero aerodynamics, just bad aerodynamics.
