Exclusive: Surveillance Footage of Tesla Crash on Bay Bridge

Exclusive: Surveillance Footage of Tesla Crash on Bay Bridge:

HIGHWAY SURVEILLANCE FOOTAGE from Thanksgiving Day shows a Tesla Model S vehicle changing lanes and then abruptly braking in the far-left lane of the San Francisco Bay Bridge, resulting in an eight-vehicle crash. The crash injured nine people, including a 2-year-old child, and blocked traffic on the bridge for over an hour.

Having experienced the “Phantom Braking” a couple of times while using just the traffic-aware cruise control it is terrifying and is really unsafe. Time to stop using that feature for a while. I have been reporting it both to the NTSB and Tesla when it happens.

Happy new year to all you independant thinkers out there.

Desert morning.

I have to think that there are many people at SpaceX and Tesla that are glad Elon is distracted over at Twitter.

Happy Evacuation Day to all my Boston peeps

Evacuation Day is a holiday observed on March 17 in Suffolk County, Massachusetts (which includes the cities of Boston, Chelsea, and Revere, and the town of Winthrop)[1] and also by the public schools in Somerville, Massachusetts.[2] The holiday commemorates the evacuation of British forces from the city of Boston following the siege of Boston, early in the American Revolutionary War.

Amanda Gorman’s poem…. wow, just wow

Well All Hallows Eve has come and gone and like all of the decade known as 2020 it was strange and different. My girls have mostly grown past the parent participation part of the night, and have progressed past trick or treating, but this year we did not go to friends for the evening of passing out candy (we live in a place where there are no treaters) and stayed home and watched a halloween movie. It was a sad and dreary night…
