    A Tesla driver in Canada was caught on a security camera as his car caught some serious air after ramping over a railroad crossing.

    Yep, that pretty much wraps up the Darwins for 2018, folks. No further entries required.

    What's a "treen"? Is that like a teen-age tree?

    Can anyone calculate the speed from the video? These are heavy cars with low high speed clearance (yet low speed clearance can be raised to 0.8" away from a jeep wrangler, right?) to catch air in this car with 2 adults is ludicrous.

    Why post this crap? It’s not news.

    Wired had an article on it.

    I have to wait till tomorrow to read it because it's behind the "you've read all your articles for the month" paywall.

    The funny thing is it's not even the money, but having to bother creating a login/etc.

    Funny that it was so fast that the camera barely captured it.

    Wired story was updated with a picture of the arresting officer.

    Clearly a serious fault in the altitude-hold function of the autopilot.
