Heck of a way to make my first post on these forums, but here we go nonetheless. With the recent news of the horrible event involving the vehicle in Charlottesville, it made me wonder how a Tesla would behave if it were surrounded by protestors (violent or otherwise). I plan on purchasing a Model 3 once my reservation is available for configuration, though the thought sort of bit at the back of my mind after the news. My initial speculation is that the collision prevention systems would prevent the vehicle from moving. Of course, the first rule in dealing with these sorts of scenarios is to outright avoid them at all costs. However, should the worst happen and protesters surround your vehicle and suddenly turn violent, are you lost to the whims of the mob? Also to be clear, there is only one very specific situation where driving through a mob is considered legal as self-defense. Namely, if a mob attempts to break into, overturn, or set fire to your vehicle. Those conditions alone present an imminent threat to your safety. Note: Should you be the first to strike a protestor with your vehicle, you would be seen as the attacker and the protesters would then be able to act in self-defense. Sorry if this post feels ill-timed but I genuinely want to know if my life would be at risk due to systems designed for safety not understanding the context of the situation. Given the difficult choice, if a crowd turned violent, I would make every attempt to gently push my way out of the mob.
