    Had the unfortunate experience of watching a Model X get side swiped last week by a school bus ...

    So sad, it was literally like watching a train wreck (slow speed). Really thought the X driver could have avoided it .. but no such luck. Certainly no injuries and damage to the X was a mirror and front quarter panel ...

    But to think about the odds of a Tesla driver watching another Tesla get taken out ... hmmmmmmmmm

    Your profile says Ft Lauderdale, FL.....if this was in Florida then I'd say the odds are pretty high there. Recently drove the length of Florida and I have to say that most of the drivers there were to absolute worst I have ever seen....constant "accidents waiting to happen", especially around the more populated cities. Having texting while driving as a secondary offence is absurd and literally the majority of drivers I saw around Miami were staring on their phones rather than the interstate, and were constantly drifting out of their lanes and swerving back in because of it. I partially understand seatbelts being a secondary offense because you're generally only putting yourself at harm....but texting as a secondary is beyond ridiculous.
