    I saw the pedestrian avoidance feature and wanted to test it out.


    Don't try this at home
    The results were stunning, once again, Tesla exceeds expectations!
    Here is the video:

    It helps when the feature is not an option that you forgot to buy.

    That video makes me sad every time I see it. Let me drive my Classic P85 at you! The automatic braking will save you, I swear!

    In case some don't know the story behind the video in post #2 above, they were trying to test pedestrian avoidance on a vehicle that didn't have that feature installed.

    That guy jumping out is insane. Didn't look like he'd have got back out of the way if it hadn't worked.
    Cars make knees bend both ways people...
