    From my experience you'll be fine if you are driving a bigger and older rental car than anyone else has. - True story. I was stuck trying to enter a traffic circle and finally thought just that: rental car (check), bigger (check), older(check) ---> ZOOM. And I'm here to tell that tale.

    I usually wake up when I'm about 10 feet from rear-ending the car in front of me... I tend to accelerate when I fall asleep. Weird.

    Thank G-d for anti-lock brakes.

    I believe I fell asleep at the wheel once, at a stop light, luckily I woke up when my car started to move, luckily it started to move when the light turned green. Sleep deprivation can be nasty

    Tesla is run by a carnival charlatan who keeps writing checks with his mouth his company can't cash. It's only rampant corruption and legal wrangling that keeps that ****house of a 'auto' company afloat..

    I can't wait to read the news reports about the Tesla that decided to slow down and pull over while driving the Dan Ryan Expressway at rush hour in Chicago.

    It is called a dead-man switch. Tesla let it's progressive babble overrule decades of fail-safes not just on trains but other vehicles.

    That's what you get when you let a drug-addled diamond heir decide he understands car design better then the engineers he's hired.
