    Yeah, I don't think they can claim autopilot failure when DWI. Good luck with that one! :rolleyes:

    Totally missed the DUI thing. It'd still be blamed on Autopilot. If you can't rely on AP when you're stoned, when can you?

    Well, IF that had happened instead with a Tesla in Autopilot mode, you can't fault it for having a visceral hatred of a fossil fuel dispenser and doing everything in its power to take it out of commission. Would need to be tweaked, though, to avoid hurting innocent bystanders. :rolleyes:

    (JUST TO BE CLEAR for anyone casually perusing this thread who was drawn to it by the title, this accident had nothing to do with a Tesla or Autopilot)

    You may want to consider writing to a mod, and asking that the thread title be changed. I know you were trying to be funny, but it is a pretty misleading thread title.

    Agreed. I thought someone in a Tesla had crashed into a gas pump.

    I say it's autopilot 0.0 at the wheel.
